Folklore & Myth Thursday – Week 20 – “T”

This week I’ll focus on figures from myth and folklore whose names start with ‘t’, including; Tiresias, Tuatha Dé Danann, Tapio, Triglav, Tuoni, Tahmuras, the Thens, and Tengu.

Book Impression – The Kalevala

Finland, snow, trees, winter

The Kalevala can be seen in the same light as the Eddas and the Illiad and Odessey as it is an epic collection of Finnish mythology. The translation which I read is part of the Oxford World Classics series and I found it to be very readable and enjoyable.
