9788499674247: La muerte de Beowulf y otros cuentos vikingos (Tombooktu Fantasia) (Spanish Edition)

Siete cuentos vikingos inspirados en las grandes sagas clásicas, desde los grandes héroes de los tiempos antiguos, como Beowulf o Ragnar Lodbrok, hasta la historia del mayor barco de guerra o la venganza del auténtico Hamlet. Hubo vikingos que vivieron una vida plagada de aventuras, por ello fueron considerados héroes por sus contemporáneos y sus sucesores. Sus vidas les hicieron merecedores de ser incluidos en las sagas que servían como modelo a imitar por los jóvenes. A través de las páginas de este libro escrito en un tono directo y ameno por el gran experto en cultura vikinga Manuel Velasco, podremos hacer un viaje al pasado para contemplar las últimas horas de Beowulf tras su batalla contra el dragón, las maquinaciones de Amled, que se hace pasar por idiota para tratar de sobrevivir mientras trama una cruel venganza, o los problemas que numerosos noruegos sufrieron cuando el rey Harald sometió al país a su cruel poder.

Book Description Tombooktu, Spain, 2012. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: Spanish . Brand New Book. Seven Viking tales inspired by classic epic tales, from the great heroes of ancient times like Beowulf and Ragnar Lodbrok, to the story of the biggest war boat or the authentic Hamlet s revenge. There were Vikings who lived adventure-filled lives and, as such, were considered heroes by their contemporaries and those that followed. Eventually their lives were included in the epic tales that would serve as models for the younger generations by offering and reiterating the basic Viking values the so-called nine noble virtues of self-discipline, autonomy, courage, honor, hospitality, hard work, loyalty, perseverance, and sincerity. Through the well-written and fascinating pages of this book written by Viking expert Manuel Velasco, readers will take an imaginary journey into the past to witness the last hours of Beowulf after his battle against the dragon, the scheming of Amled, who acted like an idiot to survive while simultaneously planning a cruel revenge plot, or the numerous problems that Norwegians experienced when King Harald ruled his land with a cruel and harsh hand.Those readers already well versed in Viking legends will discover a more enjoyable presentation of these stories. The beginner, in turn, will learn what the expert already knows: the astonishing and strong influence that these mythological stories have had on contemporary Scandinavian society, as the values and morals transmitted in these stories are still extremely valuable or important today.
