considered Odin and, to a lesser extent, Thor in the works of Poul Anderson;
looked at Thor in other media;
compared Anderson with CS Lewis -
- so here is one more detail to end tonight. CS Lewis in his youth wrote a poem, Loki Bound, with Thor as bullying villain turning Odin's mind against the tragic hero, Loki. How is that for a different perspective?
Elsewhere, I have noted this literary sequence:
Prometheus Bound by Aeschlyus;
Prometheus Unbound by Percy Shelley;
Frankenstein, or The Modern Prometheus by Mary Shelley;
Frankenstein Unbound by Brian Aldiss.
Maybe Loki Bound is a sidebar.
