BooknewsDuBois (U. of Washington) uses ethnopoetics to illuminate the relationship of Elias Lonnrot's Finnish national epic, Kalevala, to its Karelian and Ingrian source poetry. He places 19th-century epic, lyric and ritual poetry, as well as the Kalevala, in their cultural and historical contexts. Includes musical examples and photographs as well as a substantial bibliography. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
