Norse Mythology

en Limba Engleză Carte Paperback – 07 Feb 2017
Un maestru al literelor și un povestitor de excepție, Neil Gaiman prezintă o versiune a miturilor nordice care l-au inspirat în crearea propriilor narațiuni fantastice. 
Marile povești nordice sunt discutate în mod critic, dar și literar prin crearea unei povești care începe cu cele nouă lumi legendare, explorarea zeităților, dwarfi și giganți și culmină cu Ragnarok, amurgul zeilor și renașterea unui nou timp și a unor noi oameni. 
Gaiman ramâne fidel mitologiei reîncarnându-i pe Odin, cel mai mare dintre zei, înțelept și viclean, Thor, fiul său, incredibil de puternic, dar nu la fel de înțelept și Loki, fiul giganților, un trișor și un iscusit manipulator. 
Sub pana lui Gaiman zeii apar în fața cititorilor cu caracteristicile lor competititve, cu tendința de a lăsa pasiunea să le dicteze acțiunile facând ca aceste mituri străvechi să prindă din nou viață.

Caracteristici

Bursting with imaginative power, Norse Mythology is written with characteristic humour, darkness and history. Neil has often drawn on these myths in his own fantasy writing: fans of Sandman, Odd and the Frost Giants and American Gods will recognise the beginnings of favourite characters in Gaiman's retellings of Norse legends (and may spot cameos by beloved figures too)

Notă biografică

Neil Gaiman has written highly acclaimed books for children and adults and is the first author to have won the Carnegie and Newbery Medals for the same work - The Graveyard Book. The Sleeper and the Spindle, illustrated by Chris Riddell, won the 2016 Kate Greenaway Medal. American Gods has been adapted into a major series which will air in 2017.


Descriere

The great Norse myths are woven into the fabric of our storytelling - from Tolkien, Alan Garner and Rosemary Sutcliff to Game of Thrones and Marvel Comics. They are also an inspiration for Neil Gaiman's own award-bedecked, bestselling fiction. Now he reaches back through time to the original source stories in a thrilling and vivid rendition of the great Norse tales. Gaiman's gods are thoroughly alive on the page - irascible, visceral, playful, passionate - and the tales carry us from the beginning of everything to Ragnarok and the twilight of the gods. Galvanised by Gaiman's prose, Thor, Loki, Odin and Freya are irresistible forces for modern readers and the crackling, brilliant writing demands to be read aloud around an open fire on a freezing, starlit night.


Recenzii

His work draws you in and eats you up with new worlds and ideas
Brilliant . Somehow he brings us close to this world of mountains and cataracts, monsters and elves
There have been countless retellings of the Norse myths, but few that give them the everyday immediacy of Neil Gaiman's wry, punchy phrasing and delivery. You feel that bumbling Thor, wise Odin, fabulous Freya and the wily Loki are part of him
Gaiman retells the Norse sagas in his own lucid, laid-back style, teasing out the humour and absurdity inherent in the source material . An honest retelling that betrays an abiding personal passion for the exploits of dim-witted Thor, mercurial Loki, bombastic Odin and the rest
Beautifully told and a lot of fun
A bold undertaking . An excellent introduction to the stories that wield such great cultural significance
Gaiman's voice is engaging; often quirkily humorous . The author's affection for the characters shines out from every page, and the narrative, always crisp and direct, combines an adult's insight with a childlike sense of wonder at the magic of it all
Gaiman's characteristically limpid, quick-running prose keeps the dramatic impetus of the medieval texts . His telling of the tales is for children and adults alike, and this is both right and wise, it being the property of genuine myth on many levels
It's the perfect moment to become acquainted with Gaiman's eerie, fantastical writing. In his latest book, he recasts the Nordic sagas as gripping human dramas, putting flesh and blood on the slippery Loki, the hard-charging Odin and others
