Neil Gaiman, long inspired by ancient mythology in creatingthe fantastical realms of his fiction, presents a bravurarendition of the Norse gods and their world from their originthrough their upheaval in Ragnarok.In Norse Mythology, Gaiman stays true to the myths in envisioningthe major Norse pantheon: Odin, the highest of thehigh, wise, daring, and cunning; Thor, Odin’s son, incrediblystrong yet not the wisest of gods; and Loki – son of a giant– blood brother to Odin and a trickster and manipulator.Gaiman fashions these primeval stories into a novelistic arcthat begins with the genesis of the legendary nine worlds anddelves into the exploits of deities, dwarfs, and giants.There’s no need to have read the book in order to attend!Eintritt: € 3 / 2 ermäßigt / CSH-Mitglieder freiVeranstaltungssprache: EnglischFoto: © W.W.
