LIF


LIF The man who with his wife, lifthrasir, sur-vived ragnarok and repeopled the earth. During the fearful holocaust they took shelter in hod-dmimir's wood, another name for the World Tree, yggdrasil. They were nourished by the morning dew. They emerged from the tree unhurt when they saw the new sun shining. They had children and started a new life for humankind. The story appears in the vafthrudtnismal.
