characters The Broken Sword 107 Thor broke the sword Tyrfing to save the roots of Yggdrasil the tree that binds earth heaven and hell Now the elves need the w. Why is this book not popular Written four years after The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe and published the same year as Tolkien s The Fellowship of the Ring Poul Anderson s The Broken Sword is a fantasy masterpiece Combining Norse myth and legend English and World myth with historical fact and setting this tells a legendary tale economically and with a fable like tone Adventurous and entertaining as well the only reason I can think that it has been less successful than its English cousins is that where Lewis and Tolkien created fantasies rich in detail but were clearly especially Lewis a Christian allegory Anderson s book is purely mythic and leans heavily on the animistic perspective and stands outside the Christian house looking in Is this book too pagan to be marketable Anderson tells of an epic battle between elves and trolls with the Aesir and Frost giants looking on and of a tragic hero caught on the chessboard in between If you like a good fantasy and if you are interested in a blend of history and myth and any reader who enjoyed Neil Gaiman s American Gods should love this book A very good read and should be on a short list of greatest mythic fantasy books of all time

review The Broken Sword

characters The Broken Sword 107 Eapon for their war against the trolls Only Scafloc a human kidnapped and raised by elves can hope to persuade Bolverk the ice. Many ages ago when majestic forests dominated our lands and little cottages of hay and wood were the only thing protecting the hairy humans from the elements tales were not just tales The stories passed down from one generation to the next held Truth The stories read in those days were never forgotten They were carved in trees and stones they were carried with the water and the wind they were illuminated by the stars and the moon The tales were everywhere as mountains harboured dwarves and trolls treetops were infested with fairies and the ground one walked upon held within it both the Depths of Darkness and the Source of Life A wizard sat by the fire brooding He had many tales in his head of love of war of passion of hatred of honor and of treachery He had whispered many of his wise accounts to the birds to the blades of grass and to the clouds but the ears that he was supposed to reach had stopped listening The metallic churning of machines and the clinging of dirty coins drowned out all other noise and Man had stopped listening to the wizard s stories The wizard stood up and strolled pensively to his desk He had to get his stories out there without burdening busy Man s brain catch them with his wisdom unawares He glanced at his library and an idea struck him A book Of course But it needed to be a special book One that did not scare away busy Man with many pages but carried an abundance of stories within it nonetheless And so he crafted a book as small as a mouse but as heavy as a mountain a book as forethoughtful as an old man but as fast as an elfish horse A book black as tar but soft as a feather And so it is that The Broken Sword was crafted A magical book both in what it tells and how it tells it It is a story carved in trees and stones and hearts whispered in winds and memories Take heed of its warning Do not reforge the sword in the face of desperation for it will show you much uglier things
