A book full of tales of the Norse gods, goddesses and more. It's a great book for people first learning about Norse Mythology. Has a few things missing or some things aren't clear but it's an overall great book about the Norse tales. ( )

I'm not a scholar of Norse Mythology but I loved this book. A lot of the information is the same as what I've gotten from the Prose and Poetic Eddas, with a few exceptions. It's important to remember that the original printing of this book was for 1909 and some things have probably been proven untrue or dismissed in that time, but I found 95% of it to be an accurate and well written account (so far as my own knowledge goes).

Aside from the text, the book is GORGEOUS. It's faux leather hard cover with gold embossing, a ribbon bookmark, gold edged pages and is full of black and white art. It's the most beautiful book I own.

5/5 would buy again. ( )

This book is terribly outdated, and skews toward Christianity more often than not, but is a good primer for someone who doesn't know where to start with Norse mythology. It lays out all the gods, discussing their stories and how they connect to one another. It should be taken with a grain of salt, like many other books from this time, and should definitely not be treated as any scholarly source. ( )

I found this book on Project Gutenberg and decided to read it before reading some Icelandic sagas so that I wouldn't be completely lost. For someone who had little knowledge of Norse mythology this was a good book to get an overview of Norse gods and mythology. I have seen some reviews that have stated some facts in this book are not correct but since I am far from an expert on this subject I cannot comment on that. I was pleasantly surprised to get to read about Aslaug and Ragnar Lothbrok as I was not expecting them to be in this book (even the teeny bit that they were). I really enjoyed that the author sprinkled quotes from the sagas throughout this book. One thing that I felt might be interesting to some but was completely unnecessary to me was the comparison of Norse mythology to Greek mythology at the end. Quite frankly it just felt like filler and was boring. I think I would have liked it more if the author would have used the Greek names for the Greek gods instead of the Roman names. Now that I have more knowledge of Norse mythology I am looking forward to reading some Icelandic sagas. ( )

Although the Aryan inhabitants of Northern Europe are supposed by some authorities to have come originally from the plateau of Iran, in the heart of Asia, the climate and scenery of the countries where they finally settled had great influence in shaping their early religious beliefs, as well as ordering their mode of living.

I know that I hung
On a wind-rocked tree
Nine whole nights,
With a spear wponded ,
And to Odin offered Myself to myself ;
On that tree
Of which no one Knows
From what root it springs.
--Odin's Rune-song (Thorpe tr.)
