Thor—A Very Human God

Lecture no. 8 from the course: Heroes and Legends: The Most Influential Characters of Literature

Thor—A Very Human God

Taught by Professor Thomas A. Shippey | 31 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Literature & Language Courses

Thor may seem like another classic male hero—the god of thunder in Norse mythology and a superhero today—yet the Icelandic poems and stories from the 13th century undercut the image of Thor as a straightforward hero. These amusing tales will give you a new window into a character you thought you knew.
