ePub The Downfall of the Gods - Ragnarok ePub

by Villy Sørensen

Sorensen's "The Downfall of the Gods" is a wonderful first-excursion into Norse mythology for those unfamiliar with the stories.Based on the lyrical poetic Edda, the myths contained are presented in plain, no-frills prose, therefore making it readily accessible to the curious and the unviking.

Where Sorensen becomes interesting (to his readers more familiar with the mythology) is his presentation of Loki, a being Sorensen claims, "...Has no parallels elsewhere - though it is worth nothing that he shares the same fate as that of the Greek Prometheus."Loki presented as a self-sacrificing servant of humanity is compelling, though I highly recommend reading David Penchansky's book "What Rough Beast?" (particularly the chapter on Genesis) to illuminate some parallels between Loki and the Serpent that tempts Adam and Eve to the Tree of Knowledge.
