Kalevala stamp by Kivutar Kalevala stamp by Kivutar
The Kalevala is a book and epic poem which the Finn Elias Lönnrot compiled from Finnish and Karelian folklore in the 19th century.

I found this information from wikipedia, because I had no idea how explain it. :]

Feel free to use.

I really want to learn more, i'm trying, but most site/article get the the heart of the story without introduction, and i'm not familiar with an epic peom, i try to find the 'summary' version to read first, but the summaries i found are too short and doesn't support much of the story :0
if anyone know a site where  i can learn more, i'd be glad!

I did a quick search on Kalevala, and found this www.authorama.com/national-epi… it's not much, but I hope it helps.
Have you tried to ask from your local library if they had any Kalevala related books? (:
I also found out, that J.R.R Tolkien's "The story of Kullervo" has been republished. It's a story based on the Kalevala-character, Kullervo.

:O oh thank you so much for the link!
I live in Thailand, they don't care much about other country's lore at all, there are very few book written about lore of the world (Like, i only found 1 book dedicated to Norse mythology, only ONE book, can you believe that omg)
and i'd very much love to read The Story of Kullervo, but i find Tolkien's use of language to be very hard to read since i'm not that good in English T_T 
but still thank you sooo much for your help! you're such kind person!

Huh huh
Tuli kakruna kuunneltua paasausta joka koulu vuos Kalevalasta kun asun samaisessa kylässä missä tuo Lönnrot syntyi ja niin edelleen.
Ei sitä sillo oikee osannu arvostaa ku tuli joka tuutista vähä liikaaki, mutta oiva opushan se on.

En oikein itsekään lapsena jaksanu niihin tarinoihin perehtyä. Kalevalakin oli niin vaikealukuinen. :D
Vanhemmiten sitä tosiaan osaa arvostaa enemmän.. ja tähän asti se on ollut myös hyvä inspiraation lähde.

Kalevala... Mä en oo kunnolla lukenukkaan sitä.. Pitäs varmaan sivistää itteensä. Mutta mä inhoan Väinämöistä.... D: Postimerkissä on nätti kuosi. : D

Tunnustan etten itsekkään ole vielä kokonaan lukenut sitä. :[
Kalevala on vaikeasti luettava. :confused: Mutta tarinat on niin mahdottoman hyviä. Suomalaista mystiikkaa parhaimmillaan. <3
miksi inhoat väinämöistä? C:
