Librivox – Arnold – Balder Dead

Librivox Banner

I’ve worked with Librivox to provide a free audiobook version of Balder Dead by Matthew Arnold.

This poem draws upon Norse mythology: retelling the story of the the death of Odin‘s son, Balder, instigated by the treacherous jealousy of Loki. The end of the poem looks beyond the final flames of Ragnarök to the coming of the new heavens and the new earth: in which a new reign of peace will be inaugurated under Balder and his consort.
