Description

Excerpt from Norse Mythology, or the Religion of Our Forefathers: Containing All the Myths of the Eddas, Systematized and Interpreted; With an Introduction, Vocabulary and Index

Merica not discovered BY columbus having been so favorably received by the press gener ally, as well as by many distinguished scholars, who have expressed themselves in very ?attering terms of our recent de'but in English, We venture to appear again; and, although the subject is somewhat differ ent, it still (as did the first) has its fountain head in the literature of the North.

We come, this time, encouraged by all your kind words, with higher aspirations, and perhaps, too, with less timidity and modesty. We come to ask your opinion of Norse mythology. We come to ask whether Norse mythology is not equally as worthy of your attention as the Greek. Nay, we come to ask whether you will not give the Norse the preference. We pro pose to call your attention earnestly, in this volume, to the merits Of our common Gothic or Teutonic inheritance, and to chat a few hours with you about the imaginative, poetic and prophetic period of our Gothic history.
