      Seconda parte dell’epica finnica.La prima mi aveva deluso parecchio, in questo secondo volume invece abbiamo più azione e non ci sono momenti francamente noiosi come tutta la parte finale dell’altro libro, con i consigli sulla birra e sul comportamento della moglie.Il libro si apre con Lemminkainen che si risente per non essere stato invitato al banchetto a Phojola, e così prende, raggiunge quella lontana terra, si presenta con arroganza al signore di Phojola scatenando una rissa che porta [...]

      Really enjoyed this book I read the first (Crawford) English translation and to be honest was unsure what to expect,I had heard about the work and it's importance in Finnish culture,the Section 'the origins of the Iron' had been used by battle metallers Turisas in this translation so again I had some though little awareness.What I found was an eventive work ,the early creation myth itself was interesting with the yolk of a egg begeting the sun and the white the moon but it is the further tales m [...]

      Read this for the Mythgard Institute Tolkien and Epic class. I wanted to read the translation Tolkien originally read. it's a good one though a bit stilted. I am now comparing to the more modern translation for the class.
