Book Description

September 1989 World's Classics
The Finnish language belongs to a non-Indo-European group of languages whose origins have been traced to a region just west of the Urals. During the first milennium of our era, Uralic-speakers in the Baltic region developed the oral poetry which is the basis of the Kalevala, the epic poem of Finland which was assembled only 150 years ago as a portrait of an ancient people in war and peace. This poem, which has often been compared with the epics of Homer, played a central role in the process towards Finnish independence and inspired the classical composer Sibelius. This version of the Kalevela has been translated by Keith Bosley, who has been awarded the first Finnish State Prize for Translators for his work on the anthology "Finnish Folk Poetry".
