Norse myth in English poetry is a short work that explores the role Norse mythology has had in English poettry throughout the centuries. The mythology which we often call Norse, was in great part a common heritage of the Germanic peoples. Charles Herford views the Norse mythology as kindred from which the English parted in infancy, but which the English are ready to meet again, as perfect strangers, in advanced age. In Norse myth in English poetry we watch the fortunes of these primeval and rugged strangers from the North, with their mysterious and witching beauty, in enlightened and prosperous England, when the youngest of them was already almost half a millennium old.
