Books Info:

The Kalevala, Volume II free pdf A deeper and more esoteric meaning of the Kalevala, however, points to a contest between Light and Darkness, Good and Evil- the Finns representing the Light and the Good, and the Lapps, the Darkness and the Evil. Like the Niebelungs, the heroes of the Finns woo for brides the beauteous maidens of the North- and the similarity is rendered still more striking by their frequent inroads into the country of the Lapps, in order to possess themselves of the envied treasure of Lapland, the mysterious Sampo, evidently the Golden Fleece of the Argonautic expedition. Curiously enough public opinion is often expressed in the runes, in the words of an infant- often too the unexpected is introduced after the manner of the Greek dramas, by a young child, or an old man.
