Echoes of Valhalla: The Afterlife of the Eddas and Sagas with Jón Karl Helgason

Listen for an excellent conversation with Dr. Jón Karl Helgason on this new book, Echoes of Valhalla: The Afterlife of the Eddas and Sagas. Dr. Helgason is a professor at the University of Iceland and describes the way in which the myths of Old Norse literature have lived on throughout history. From Tolkien’s Wizard Gandalf, Richard Wagner’s famous operas, and Marvel’s Mighty Thor: these are only a few examples of how Old Norse literature has shaped the lives of many over the past 150 years.
