9781440078415: Stories from Northern Myths (Classic Reprint)

Stories from Northern Myths How All Things Began LONG, long ago, before the earth was made, and there was no sea and sky or night and day, the vast, unending Land of Mist stretched away on one side of a bottomless gulf,1 on the other side of which lay theL and ofF ire. The Land of Mist was called Niflheim, and here eternal winter reigned with fog and snow and darkness that wrapped the dreary land about like a shroud. From the heart of Niflheim there flowed a dark, tumultuous river, and as it rushed down into the chasm at its edge, the waters met the cold blasts that swept up from below, and great mountains of ice were formed on the side of the gulf over which the chill fogs gathered and the bitter winds blew. The never changing twilight which brooded over the gulf was sometimes illuminated by sparks that were blown over from theL and ofF ire that lay just 1I tis called in theE ddas Ginungagap.
