No unread replies.No replies.
The archetype of the trickster is one we find many times in mythology. In this module, we meet the trickster Loki from Norse mythology in our readings of the Prose Edda and in the film, Thor. The trickster is a much different character than the archetype of our previous focus, the hero.
In your initial post, explain the purpose of Loki in the Prose Edda and in the film, Thor. Why is he important? Discuss how the myths would be different without him. Compare how the trickster differs from the hero.
