A compelling insight into the myths and folklore of Finland, The Kalevala
is often compared to such epic poems as Homer's Odyssey
. Drawing from oral storytelling traditions, Elias Lönnrot made this collection in the 19th-century, and it helped to cement Finnish identity in the turmoil of the 20th-century.
