A Conversation for Norse Mythology


Post 1


One of the things that always fascinated me with the Norse myths was that the gods don't even come close to be perfect. They all seemed to have at least one drastic flaw. Odin is a perfect example, he sacrificed his eye for wisdom, yet didn't gain the omniscience he constantly strove for. I think that this could lend a little insight into the society from which these myths developed. At this point, I have been fascinated by the storied but have not had much of a chance to actually research everything that surrounded them. If I am wrong on this, please, someone let me know.
