Norse Mythology: Legends of Gods and Heroes

Peter Andreas Munch

This famous book was a strong instrument of building nationalistic feeling in 19th century Norway. It was written by a famous Norwegian historian, and so it was taken much more seriously than other folklore of the time. The book established a sense of historical continuity between Norways independent, warlike past and its ideas of nationalism.
