Tolkien's wizard Gandalf, Wagner's Valkyrie Brunnhilde and Marvel's superhero the Mighty Thor: these are just a few examples of how Icelandic medieval literature has shaped the human imagination during the past 150 years. Echoes of Valhalla shows how disparate, age-old poems and prose from medieval rural Iceland have become a part of our shared cultural experience today - how the eddas and sagas themselves live on, as well as the colourful characters and adventures they describe. The book will appeal to the wide audience interested in Viking mythology and history, as well as films, books, music, graphic novels and tv series such as Game of Thrones.
