In this booklet, one of the key-note experiences of the Class 4 child is presented in compact but comprehensive form as study material for the class teacher or 'interested party.' . . . It provides a means of quickly calling to mind the adventures of the one-eyed Odin, wise leader of the gods, and his hot-blooded companion Thor as they grapple with the ever-unfolding mischief wrought by the cunning and treacherous Loki, leading to the powerful apocalyptic vision of Ragnarok. The summary accounts of each story are accompanied by Roy Wilkinson's interpretations of the symbolism which bear the mark of his years of work in Anthroposophy and teaching in Steiner schools.
Waldorf teacher Roy Wilkinson was an indefatigable teacher of children, lecturer, author, and inspirer of many people in the Waldorf movement in the UK and abroad, right up to his death at the age of 90 in 2007.
