About the Author

Born in a Longford workhouse where his father was first teacher and then master, Padraic Colum grew into an important figure in the Irish literary renaissance before immigrating to the United States. Invited by the Fay brothers to join the National Theatre Society, he married the teacher and writer näytä lisää Mary Maguire, with whom he undertook several joint projects. The Colums immigrated to the United States in 1914. Colum kept up a varied production of verse, plays, fiction, criticism, and children's literature, together with active lecturing. His most extended teaching appointment was at Columbia University, where he and his wife offered a joint course in comparative literature. Colum felt that his Roman Catholic and peasant roots gave him a closer tie to the Irish folk than did the Protestant, Anglo-Irish background of many writers of the Irish renaissance. His poetry usually deals with common people and rural landscapes in a forthright manner. Colum was resolutely Irish, and his work for the most part avoids didacticism or sentimental nationalism in favor of straightforward presentation. (Bowker Author Biography) näytä vähemmän

I was really glad to finally get an overview of Norse mythology. The interlude about the Volsungs seems out of place, and I was already somewhat familiar with it, but it was good reading all the same. It's interesting to see how parts of these stories have been used by modern writers in their own way: most obviously Lewis and Tolkien, but I suspect also George R.R. Martin.

I don’t know much about Greek Mythology. But, hey, Zeus and Hercules and all that stuff has always been SUPER cool when it’s shown up in TV and movies! And then… yaaaaaaawn. I was reading sentences, and realizing that the material in the sentences should have been exciting. There was fighting. There was lots of drama and abrupt life (-no, WORLD-) altering things. Plus, explanations for the heavens and seasons and so on. That should be really interesting. For whatever reason, I couldn’t get along with the author’s writing style. It was easy enough to understand, it just wasn’t easy to enjoy. It wasn’t a terrible book, and I genuinely did like pieces; I’m merely pained by thinking that something SHOULD be so much more fun.… (lisätietoja)
