A Scandinavian Folk and Fairy Tale collection called Tales From The Old Norse.

 

This volume, Tales From The Old Norse is part of a set of collections covering the Scandinavian story-telling tradition. With this volume we reach the conclusion of our journey through the tales from the north. Originally I intended to complete the Scandinavian series with the Finnish volume, but as ever, there were just too many fabulous stories in my archive to call such an immediate halt.

 

In this volume we have work collected by Jørgen Engebretsen Moe and Peter Christen Asbjørnsen taken from East o' the Sun and West o' the Moon and Norske Folkeeventyr, much of which I have adapted from George Webbe Dasent’s translations in Popular Tales from the Norse and from Andrew Lang’s Red Romance Book.

 

Norse mythology is generally considered to be the body of myths of the North Germanic peoples , stemming from Norse paganism and continuing after the Christianization of Scandinavia and into the Scandinavian folklore of the modern period. The northernmost extension of Germanic mythology, Norse mythology consists of tales of various deities, beings, and heroes derived from numerous sources from both before and after the pagan period, including medieval manuscripts, archaeological representations, and folk tradition.

 

As a result of their common Germanic origin, Scandinavian folklore shows a large correspondence with folklores elsewhere, such as England and Germany, among others.
