The Kalevala, a Finnish epic on the scale of the Iliad and the Odyssey, presents a rare portrait of an ancient people in both peace and at war. It played a central role in the march towards Finnish independence and inspired some of Sibelius's greatest works. This new translation, by a poet and prize-winning translator of Finnish poetry, is a powerful and faithful reflection of a classic of European literature.

The national folk epic of Finland is here presented in an English translation that is both scholarly and eminently readable. To avoid the imprecision and metrical monotony of earlier verse translations, Francis Magoun has used prose, printed line for line as in the original so that repetitions, parallelisms, and variations are readily apparent. The lyrical passages and poetic images, the wry humor, the tall-tale extravagance, and the homely realism of the Kalevala come through with extraordinary effectiveness.

"Pentikäinen's exceptional interdisciplinary study will richly reward those interested in the dynamics of artistic creation and cultural construction, ethnic emergence and political nationalism, and shamanistic belief systems." --American Anthropologist " . . . a splendid contribution to the literature on folk epics . . . " --The Scandinavian-American Bulletin The Kalevala, created during the 1830s and 1840s, is based on authentic folklore collected and compiled by Elias Lonnrot. It was the Kalevala that initiated the process leading to the foundation of Finnish identity during the nineteenth century and was, therefore, one of the crucial factors in the formation of Finland as a new nation in the twentieth century.

'One of the great mythic poems of Europe' The New York Times Sharing its title with the poetic name for Finland - 'the land of heroes' - Kalevala is the soaring epic poem of its people, a work rich in magic and myth which tells the story of a nation through the ages from the dawn of creation. Sung by rural Finns since prehistoric times, and formally compiled by Elias Lönnrot in the nineteenth century, it is a landmark of Finnish culture and played a vital role in galvanizing its national identity in the decades leading to independence. Its themes, however, reach beyond borders and search the heart of human existence. Translated with an Introduction by Eino Friberg

"First compiled from oral tradition in a systemic way in the early 19th century, this is the Finnish national epic, the greatest example of Finnish literature and the ancient text that illuminates the unique character of these Baltic peoples. Here, in lyrical, expressive language, are nearly 23,000 verses relating the adventures of the legendary heroes Väinämöinen, the "eternal sage," and his companion, the "everlasting smith" Ilmarinen; of the deity Lemminkäinen; and other magical demigods. With its grand scope encompassing the dawn of prehistory through the Iron Age, Kalevala is a work of vital anthropological significance, from its creation mythology to its marking of the shifts in cultural ideas and attitudes, particularly as pagan belief systems clash with arriving Christianity in the latest verses. This edition features the now-classic 1907 translation by British entomologist WILLIAM FORSELL KIRBY (1844-1913), and will thrill readers of comparative mythology as well as fans of imaginative epic literature."--Page 4 of cover.
