Norse Mythology – The Mead of Poetry

| | 0 Comments

The Mead of Poetry is such a gripping tale, telling of the time when two sociopathic dwarves murdered the wisest human being who ever lived. The dwarves then embark upon a killing spree, murdering two giants, whose son later seeks to avenge their death. It is truly a marvelous myth centered around Odin and his quest for wisdom.
