"The Nordic Storyteller offers a cornucopia of articles with a considerable historical range. We learn not only about saints, black books, strong wives, lumberjacks and hygiene, and about the role of storytellers across the Nordic region, but also about the rich cross-pollination between folklore and modern literature."-Karin Sanders, University of California at Berkeley."The serious engagement in these essays with questions of nationalism, colonialism, representations, cultural history, folklore methodology, and film studies-- all treated with the sort of sensible and sensitive approach characteristic of the man to whom they are dedicated-- make this anthology an important contribution to scholarship on the Nordic region specifically, as well as to the humanities more generally."-Steven Mitchell, Harvard University
