31: Lokasenna - The Flyting of Loki from the Poetic Edda of Norse Mythology

00:0000:00

The Gods hold a feast in the hall of Aegir! Everyone is there! Odin, Frigg, Freyr, Freya, Njord, Vidar. Everyone but Thor. Loki is there too. And Loki is full of bitterness and hatred. This famous poem is the rap battle of the Gods. Will Loki put the Gods in their place, or will the Gods exact their punishment on the trickster? Find out with us as we read Lokasenna!
