These 450 poems, songs, charms, prayers and laments in the original languages and in English convey the worldview and an insight into the lives of pre-literate peoples. The text illustrate the beliefs, perceptions and artistic genius of fifteen peoples scattered across Northern Europe deep into Russia and beyond the Urals, and of Hungarians in Central Europe. Each section is introduced by a specialist essay.
