Folk Tales from Icelandby Students' Academy
- LendMe LendMe™ Learn More
The folk tales from Iceland contain both firm sense and wisdom. They tell of enigmatic elves and different beings. Some such beings are horrible, others milder. Many folktale motifs of Norwegian folklore may be found too. The somewhat darker tone of Icelandic tales presumably reflects the Icelandic way of life earlier. Folktales illustrate, explain, warn and entertain. Ghosts and fairies pop up to such ends, as do trolls and giants.
As it is, strange tales can instill respect for nature and creatures, or imagined spirits of many sorts. Values can be passed on to children to show them the ways of ancestors.
Some of the most popular of the Icelandic folk tales have been presented in this book. They will definitely entertain, inform, and educate the readers from different parts of the world.
