The Wisdom of Nines…

France & Vincent

*

The Norse version of this myth is quite specific.

*

Kvasir is the wisest man around.

He utilises a ‘wider context’ to solve his problems.

*

Odin attains wisdom

after nine nights on the world tree.

As a prelude to re-acquiring the potent brew

he overcomes ‘nine thralls’.

*

It is only after the addition of honey,

by the dwarfs, that poetic skill is mentioned,

but honey and poetry may have already been synonymous.

*

This adds further weight to the notion,

that by applying blood, sweat, and tears,

we too can acquire wisdom.
