Discover Scandinavian Legends

Thor resorts to cross-dressing in a bid to recover his stolen hammer. The hero Widrick Waylandsson comes face to face with a troll in the forest. A king's daughter is abducted from a convent in rural Sweden. A young fighter has to show off his prowess in skiing and shooting for King Harald Hardrada. And more...

The medieval Scandinavian ballads in this collection tell stories of champions and fighters, vikings, and trolls, drawing on Norse mythology and heroic legend. There are riddles, and there are appearances from Thor, Loki, Sigurd, and other figures from the myths of the Edda and from history. Narrative ballads were part of an oral folk music tradition in Scandinavia, and were first written down around 1600, although the ballads themselves are older. These new English verse translations are mainly based on Swedish tradition.

Here are goodreads reviews for Warrior Lore (4.03 stars): https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/...-warrior-lore/

There are also more reviews on LibraryThing (4.38 stars): https://www.librarything.com/work/14975886/reviews/

And of course on Amazon (4.2 stars): http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00K3W7E36/

Thor, Loki, Sigurd, Harald H., , , ,

The ballads chosen for inclusion in Warrior Lore were selected as reflecting the traditions of Nordic legends and myths. Only one ballad survives that tells a story of the Norse gods. That is The Hammer Hunt, and is included here. Other ballads tell stories of early Scandinavian royalty, and others of legendary north-European heroes:

The poem Volundarkvida from the Poetic Edda ends with the death of King Nidud's sons, and the exit of Wayland Smith into the air, leaving behind Nidud's daughter, Bodil, in a pregnant state. What next?

The medieval Scandinavian ballad Widrick Waylandsson's fight with Long-Ben Reyser tells one story of the great warrior that that baby became. Listen here to a reading of the translation of that ballad from Warrior Lore:

Can you answer my riddles? It will be good for you if you can. It will be bad if you can't.

“What is it that’s rounder than a wheel?
“And where can you find the fairest deer?
“And where does the sun go to its seat?
“And where does a dead man put his feet?
