Maak kennis met de wereld van Odin, Freyja, Skadi, Loki en al die andere goden uit de Scandinavische mythologie. Aan de hand van de Poëtische Edda en de Edda van Snorri Sturluson schetst mediëvist Carolyne Larrington een levendig beeld van hun avonturen en intriges. Niet alleen de goden en hun helpers (zoals de Walkuren), hun woonplaatsen (Walhalla!) en hun eeuwige tegenstanders (de reuzen) komen aan bod. Ook de door moord, wraak en weerwraak getekende geschiedenis van het geslacht der Völsungen, helden uit de Vikingtijd, wordt uitvoerig besproken. Alles binnen het grote kader van schepping, vernietiging en herschepping van de wereld.

Dit boek is een aanrader voor wie wil weten hoe het ook alweer zat met de verhalen achter de opera’s van Richard Wagner of Game of Thrones, en voor iedereen met belangstelling voor de Noord-Europese geschiedenis en cultuur.
