Hardcover: $40.60
Prints in 3-5 business days
This is a side-by-side translation of the Kalevala into English using Project Gutenberg texts. Any revenues made are given to Project Gutenburg. This book was originally assembled by Dustin (myself)... More > for his mom Laila Rahnasto as a Christmas present in 2010. Here I have assembled a side-by-side English and Finnish version of The Kalevala, the national epic of Finland. There are a few English translations of the Kalevala, but I decided to use W.F. Kirby’s, as it is the most literal. It is accepted in translation that there is a tension between literal translation and poetic beauty; it is hard to do both simultaneously. I have used W.F. Kirby’s as I wanted the lines in each part of the poem to roughly line up. Some sections are off by 1 or 2 lines. The notes at the end refer to lines in the poem by number, but I found it too difficult to include them. It turned out to be harder than it was worth.< Less
