THE MYTHIC, SHAMANISTIC NATURE of the Kalevala has been emphasised ever since the epic was first published.

This work by Anna-Leena Siikala analyses the shamanistic images and metaphors encountered in the oral poetry of the Baltic Finns and at the same time examines the action of the ecstatic tietäjäs and the seers who fell into a trance. It thus reveals the images and metaphors and their variations associated with the shaman’s skills, the topography ... View more info

Seller ID: 115046

ISBN: 952222393X

Condition: New


Teos johdattaa lukijansa kalevalaisen runon lisäksi šamanistiseen sielukäsitykseen, suomalaisten geneettiseen perimään ja muinaisten kulttuurien monimuotoiseen vuorovaikutukseen. Moni suomalainen myytti avautuu muiden muassa mordvan runouden, Obin ja Altain traditioiden tai skandinaavien vanhojen kertomusten avulla. Kalevalamittainen runous ei ollut yksin suomalaisten ja karjalaisten omaisuutta. Kalevalan aineksista lähes puolet löytyy myös virolaisesta kansanperinteestä. Lisäksi näitä lauluja lauloivat inkeriläiset ja vatjalaiset. Niistä muodostuu itämerensuomalaisten myyttien ... View more info

THEORETICAL DISCUSSIONS ON CULTURE and folklore have bifurcated into two major directions. Individualistic interpretations have emphasised performance and culture as being a product of individual strategic choices. Put in a wider social context culture has been reduced to hegemonic tradition in service of the interests of the elites. The analysis of Polynesian cultural practices in this volume reassesses the importance of theoretical understanding of culture which enables an analytic understanding of social action, political structure, narrative practices and thus the culturally constituted li...

ISBN: 952222376X

Condition: New


Mythic discourses in the present day show how vernacular heritage continues to function and be valuable through emergent interpretations and revaluations. At the same time, continuities in mythic images, motifs, myths and genres reveal the longue durée of mythologies and their transformations. The eighteen articles of Mythic Discourses address the many facets of myth in Uralic cultures, from the Finnish and Karelian world-creation to Nenets shamans, offering multidisciplinary perspectives from twenty eastern and western scholars. The mythologies of Uralic peoples differ so considerably that m... View more info
