I enjoyed this bookand ended up taking uite a few notes but when it came down to it I am not sure that I uite liked how this book was organized The myths were fascinating but I feel there may have been a way to arrange them that would make everything easier to followThat being said there s a lot to consider in this collection Some things I jotted down as interestingI found Loki s role as the god of mischief turned evil fascinating He started out neutrally troublesome and become something much sinister Super thought provokingI loved the parallels I caught between the myths and stories we tell today for example the story of Brynhild and the similarity of fairy tales like Sleeping Beauty and Snow White at least until you get to the tragic Romeo and Juliet part I even caught a little Arthurian thread in there Sword in a tree anyoneIt was also awesome being able to trace some Tolkien imagery to ideas found in these myths Never having read some of these stories I didn t realize how heavily Tolkien had borrowed some of his ideas A cursed ring A treasure that turns a man into a dark creature Where have I beenOther things weren t so much parallels as things I found interesting to ponder For example when Odin and Frigga wager on who is kingly and you can see the competition between wisdom and strength taking place in the myth Wisdom wins and yet bravery is supremely important as shown in the story of the Valkyries and Brynhild and SigurYou can also contemplate the price of a life in the story of Loki and the Otter and yet the gods send Valkyries train men to die and take their places in Odin s Ragnarok armyAnd okay one last contradiction to ponder Thor feels shamed when he dresses as Freya to fool the giants and Loki mocks him and yet how many times does Loki borrow the falcon dress to change his shapeSpeaking of the giants isn t it fascinating how much power giants dwarves and witches have over the gods themselves I found it so I kind of wanted to know about the gods just so I could understand that betterThere s so much I could write I literally filled a page full of notes I don t think I would be successful putting it coherently though I m not sure THIS has been coherent And while again I didn t love the setup of this book it definitely piued enough interest that I will do some future research into Norse mythology And I might work on my pronunciation of some of these Nordic names as well
