Centuries ago, the legend of the Nibelung gave birth to the most powerful figures of Germanic myth - half warriors, half gods, these superhuman characters inspired awe in all who heard of their strength and their magic. In Sigfrid and Brunahild, the most dramatic union was created: their force, invincible; their passion, unequaled. But even these timeless heroes were once youths themselves, children born to rival kings. In The Wolf and the Raven, Diana L. Paxson captures the early years of their legend, skillfully placing her mythical characters amid the very real turbulent scenery of fifth-century Europe, a land ravaged by tribal warfare

Odin : ecstasy, runes & Norse magic by Diana L Paxson( Book )

4 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 160 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Odin is arguably one of the most enigmatic and complex characters in Norse mythology. Revered since the Viking Age, Odin has been called the greatest of the gods--the god of words and wisdom, runes and magic, a transformer of consciousness, and a trickster who teaches truth. He is both war god and poetry god, and he is the Lord of Ravens, the All- Father, and the rune master. Odin: Ecstasy, Runes, and Norse Magic is the first book on Odin that is both historically sourced and accessible to a general audience. It explores Odin's origins, his appearances in sagas, old magic spells, and the Poetic Edda, and his influence on modern media, such as Tolkien's Lord of the Rings trilogy. Each chapter features suggestions for rituals, exercises, and music, so readers can comprehend and become closer to this complicated god. Author Diana Paxson, an expert on Viking-era mythology, provides a complete portrait of Odin and draws on both scholarship and experience to provide context, resources, and guidance for those who are drawn to work with the Master of Ecstasy today
