Teutonic Mythology

( 13 )

Overview

The linguist and philologist Jacob Grimm (1785–1863) is best remembered as co-editor, with his brother Wilhelm, of Grimm's Fairy Tales, though their great Deutsches Wörterbuch remains an influential etymological reference work. Grimm's exhaustive study in comparative mythology and religion, Deutsche Mythologie, was first published in German in 1835: this English translation, published between 1880 and 1888, is of the posthumous fourth German edition of 1875.

Overview

The linguist and philologist Jacob Grimm (1785–1863) is best remembered as co-editor, with his brother Wilhelm, of Grimm's Fairy Tales, though their great Deutsches Wörterbuch remains an influential etymological reference work. Grimm's exhaustive study in comparative mythology and religion, Deutsche Mythologie, was first published in German in 1835: this English translation, published between 1880 and 1888, is of the posthumous fourth German edition of 1875. Drawing on his broad knowledge of language and world mythology, Grimm outlines a wide variety of themes in Germanic folklore (such as time, creation, destiny and the soul), comparing them to classical and oriental tales as well as charting the influence of Christianity on legends and on Pagan religion. Volume 4 contains supplementary material for the previous volumes and three appendices. Erudite and full of insight, this is an invaluable resource for scholars of mythology and religion as well as of German cultural history.

    B&N is really bumming me out.

    Here is yet another botched classical read that makes me hate Barnes and Noble all the more. Not only is it a mish-mash of random Latin, German, and English, the typos running rampant throughout the entire work causes another book to be unattainable through B&N. Thanks, you lazy jerks.

    Poor digital copy

    Unfortunatly the lack of formatting and random patches of non-text characters make this ebook unusuable. Sadly B&N is full of these wastes of time.

    It is however very much worth the effort to find a good copy of Grimm's work.

    An excellent survey of Teutonic Mythology

    This book is outstanding an written by a master in his craft, a man of the German people who understood them well and wrote for and about them which had the practical effect of securing his own heritage. Outstanding in every respect. I would highly recommend this book along with Volumes 2, 3 and 4 of the same series. Excellent, Excellent, Excellent. A reference library for a lifetime.

    Not worth reading

    What does Hindu, Greek, Persian, Chinese and Jewish have to do with Teutonic mythology? I'm very disappointed and pissed that i wasted my time reading this trying to make any sense out of what they where writing. I'm just glad this book didn't cost me any money. And the only reason is getting one star is because I have to give it a rating:
