Synopsis for Original Title

The Norse myths are second only to the Greek myths in their greatness and power, and and these stories of giants striding across the Nordic landscape, of stallions pulling the sun's chariot, of the trickster Loki's shapeshifting, of the slaying of monsters and the passions, squabbles and betrayals of gods and goddesses, are magnificent to read.
