Andre søndag i advent og jeg gjør nok en gang nye ting. Denne gangen er smakebiten på engelsk, fordi jeg leser den engelske utgaven av Norse mythology av Neil Gaiman. Jeg tar meg tid med denne boken, leser bare en historie av gangen. På denne måten føler jeg at jeg kan nyte boka litt lenger.
Do you wonder where poetry comes from? Where we get the songs we sing and the tales we tell? Do you ever ask yourself how it is that some people can dream great, wise, beautiful dreams and pass those dreams on as poetry to the world, to be sung and retold as long as the sun rises and sets, as long as the moon will wax and wane? Have you ever wondered why some people make beautiful songs and poems and tales, and some of us do not?
It is a long story, and it does no credit to anyone: there is murder in it, and trickery, lies and foolishness, seduction and pursuit. Listen.
