Overview

Padraic Colum (1881-1972) was an Irish poet, novelist, dramatist, biographer and collector of folklore. He was one of the leading figures of the Celtic Revival. At the age of seventeen, he passed an exam for and was awarded a clerkship in the Irish Railway Clearing House. He stayed in this job until 1903. During this period, Colum started to write and met a number of the leading Irish writers of the time. His earliest published poems appeared in The United Irishman. His first book, Wild Earth (1907) collected many of these poems. In 1911 he founded the short-lived literary journal The Irish Review. In 1914, Colum travelled to the USA where he took up children's writing and published a number of collections of stories for children, beginning with The King of Ireland's Son (1916). In 1922 he started writing novels. Amongst his other works are Three Plays (1916), The Boy Who Knew What the Birds Said (1918), The Children of Odin: The Book of Northern Myths (1920) and The Golden Fleece and the Heroes Who Lived Before Achilles (1921).

I read this book when I was in high school and was instantly captivated by the stories of Northern lore. I recommend this book for those who are new to Norse mythology or simply love to study the stories

The arena is a sunken hollow in the ground with stone bleachers ringing the circular pit. The outside of the pit is sand with straw dummies and weapon racks lining the wall. In the center, a lush, dense garden hides summoned monsters and opponents. Spruce trees shadow hornet nests and buckets of hot water. Poison ivy shrouds bushes. Swinging logs attack unwary people and fog makers create a thick cloud throughout the mini forest.
