Hrafna Cyning

R 40.00

The text used in this work, Hrafna-Cyning, anglo-saxon for Raven king, serves as the autobiographical introduction of a descendant of Woden (Odin), The Raven King. The text is written in Anglo-Saxon (an early form of Old English) as it would have been written historically, and is a derivative of the old Icelandic or Norse language Spoken by the Vikings.

This work attempts to capture th ruthless aggression often associated with Vikings in conjunction with the dark, uneasy subject of the Raven kings’ cruelty and wrath.

The work follows an arc similar to what one would expect during a victims’ encounter with the Raven King. Starting with the approach, arrival and self-introduction of the Raven king and, after all the applicable practices and activities, ending with his departure at sunrise as the ravens approach and the victims’ heartbeat slows to a standstill.
