<u>Norse Hero Tales</u> by Isabel Wyatt

Norse Hero Tales by Isabel Wyatt

Temporarily Out of Stock. Please check back!

The world of the Norse men was rich in poetry, legend, and song. Whenever there was a feast to greet guests, to celebrate weddings, or for the safe return of voyagers, the bards, or “skalds,” were called to tell stories and sing songs. Their stories were colorful and dramatic, telling of kings and queens, princes and princesses, duels and battles, and great sea journeys. They portrayed heroes to admire and villains to fear and made listeners tremble and gasp with tales of love and daring, power, and cunning.

These stories of Norse heroes, beautifully retold by the renowned storyteller Isabel Wyatt, are drawn from the collection of tales compiled by Saxo Grammaticus (c.1150–1220), the Danish historian, and other early Scandinavian writers. Included is an informative introduction.

These stories are particularly useful for teaching Norse Mythology in Waldorf class 4 (ages 9–10). This book was formerly titled The King and the Green Angelica.

128 pages, Paperbound, 8 1/2" x 5 1/2".
