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 Lonnrot made this collection in the 19th-century, and it helped to cement Finnish identity in the turmoil of the 20th-century.
