Scandinavian folk belief and legend by Reimund Kvideland( Book )

20 editions published between 1987 and 2010 in English and held by 633 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Here is a rich compendium of hundreds of legends, stories, beliefs, and magic collected from oral sources in preindustrial Scandinavia. In this rural society, the people lived close to nature and believed themselves an integral part of it. This volume focuses on beliefs that illustrate the central aspects of a traditional worldview, rather than on prose narratives considered for their literary value

All the world's reward : folktales told by five Scandinavian storytellers by Hallfreurorn Eiriksson( Book )

10 editions published between 1999 and 2011 in English and held by 362 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"All the World's Reward presents ninety-eight tales from Norway, Denmark, Sweden, Swedish-speaking Finland, and Iceland. Each area is represented by the complete recorded repertoire of a single storyteller. Such a focus helps place the stories in the context of the communities in which they were performed and also reveals how individual folk artists used the medium of oral literature to make statements about their lives and their world. Some preferred jocular stories and others wonder tales; some performed mostly for adults, others for children; some used storytelling to criticize society, and others spun wish fulfillment tales to find relief from a harsh reality."--Jacket
