Today I… finished this book.

I bought it last weekend in a church sale for 50p. I have previously read Possession by AS Byatt as part of my literature course (although I hated it).   257 more words


Ragnarök 1 (July 2014)

The Poetic Edda, trans. by Carolyne Larrington

The further I delve into Norse literature, the more delighted I become.

Thor's Hammer

Mighty Thor’s hammer strikes his anvil,
startling me awake from restless dreams.
Sparks rend the angry sky across
the portals of Asgard, dire warnings
of the approach of Ragnarok.
