Seeking the god with many names.
Among the most enigmatic and complex characters in Norse mythology, Odin has been called the greatest of the gods. He is the god of words and wisdom, tunes and magic; a transformer of consciousness; and a trickster who teaches truth. He is both war god and poetry god, and he is the Lord of Ravens, the All-Father, and the rune master.
Odin: Ecstasy, Runes, and Norse Magic is the first book on Odin that is both historically sourced and accessible to a general audience. It explores Odin’s origins; his appearances in sagas, the Poetic Edda, and old magic spells and new entertainments, such as Neil Gaiman’s American Gods; as well as his influence on modern media, such as J.R.R. Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings trilogy. Each chapter features suggestions for rituals, exercises, and music, so readers can comprehend and become closer to this profound and complicated deity.
Diana Paxson, an expert on Viking-era mythology, provides a complete portrait of Odin and draws on both scholarship and experience to provide context, resources, and guidance for those who are drawn to work with the Master of Ecstasy today.
“This remarkable book is at times ribald and reverent, world-wise and Innocent, pragmatic and idealistic. as needed to masterfully show the ways of a very complex god.” ─lvo Dominguez, author of Keys to Perception.
