Neil Gaiman was for a long time inspired by ancient mythology in creating the fantasy of the kingdoms of his fiction.Now he turns his attention to the source, presenting a piece of bravery rendered from the great northern tales.In Nordic Mythology, Gaiman remains faithful to the myths by contemplating the main Norse pantheon: Odin, the highest of the high, wise, daring and cunning; Thor, son of Odin, incredibly strong but not the wiser of the gods; and Loki-son of a giant – Odin’s blood brother and a treacherous and unsurpassable.Gaiman’s primitive fashions of these stories in a novelsque arc that begins with the genesis of the legendary nine worlds and plunges into the exploits of dwarves, dwarves and giants.Once, when Thor’s hammer is stolen, Thor must disguise himself as a difficult woman with his beard and huge appetite to fly backwards.More poignant is the story where Kvasir’s blood, the wiser of the gods, is transformed into a mead that infuses drinkers with poetry.The work ends in Ragnarok, the twilight of the gods and the rebirth of a new time and peopleBy Gaiman is skillful and witty prose-filled prose emerge these gods with their very competitive natures, their sensitivity to deceit and deceive others, and their tendency to let passion ignite their actions, the capture of these long ago myths breathe the pungent smell of life again.
