Norse Mythology

In Norse Mythology, award-winning, bestselling author Neil Gaiman revives the myths that have pervaded much of modern fiction.

From the origin of the nine worlds to the twilight of the gods, Gaiman’s novel is an updated story for a new age, reinvigorating major figures such as Odin the all-father, Thor and his powerful hammer Mjollnir, Loki, Freya, frost giants and dwarfs.

In a time when Norse legends are being marketed as superheroes in blockbuster films, Norse Mythology draws on the original 13th century scripts compiled by medieval scholars.  However, Gaiman also emphasises that the myths are part of an evolving discourse, and will continue to be reinterpreted over time.
