Synopsis: You may not think you know much about Norse mythology but you?ve heard of Valhalla and the Valkyrie, and of trolls and elves, and you?d certainly miss Wednesday and Thursday ? named after Norse gods ? if they weren?t there.

Norse mythology is rich in adventure and ideas about creation, death and the afterlife. And from Wagnerian operas to Lord of the Rings to Marvel?s Avengers, it has had an immense influence across Western culture.

Norse Myths takes a wide-ranging approach to the topic, examining the creation stories of the Norse world, the monsters and the pantheons of the deities including such figures as Thor, Freyr and Loki. It looks at the sagas that tell of real and imagined people, featuring both heroic tales and humorous escapades. The book also examines how Norse myths were interpreted in a Christianized Europe and how their motifs influenced medieval German writers and, in turn, were used in the modern world in very different ways, by the likes of Richard Wagner, Adolf Hitler and J.R.R. Tolkien.

Illustrated with 180 color and black & white photographs, artworks and maps, Norse Myths is an exciting, engaging and highly informative exploration of a fascinating and highly influential world, and will appeal to anyone interested in folklore and history.
