Praise

“A masterpiece.” ― Spectator (London)

“One of the great mythic poems of Europe.” ― New York Times

“The Kalevala is a fabulous narrative spiced with exotic images and much hilarity.” — Jennifer Cooke, Melbourne Sunday Herald

“The Penguin Classic edition shines a light not just on the Finnish epic but also on Friberg’s extraordinary translational vision, which foregrounds the oral dimensions of the poem.” — Medium.com

“The republication of this translation, which has been out of print for decades, will hopefully shine a light not just on the Finnish epic but also on Friberg’s extraordinary translational vision, which foregrounds the oral dimensions of the poem.” — Rebecca Ruth Gold, Poetry Magazine
