The Supernatural in the European Far North Fairytales and legends, literary forms that convey fan- tastical events, reveal a lot about the culture and identity of the country that produced them. This volume pres- ents 139 Icelandic examples, stories aimed at both chil- dren and adults. For the most part, they are taken from the 19th-century collection of Jón Árnason and Magnús Grímsson and other similar collections from that time. Elves, trolls and gnomes are of course common themes, but natural phenomena such as the eruption of the vol- cano Hekla, the glacier flood in Hornfjarðarfljót or how the arctic fox came to Iceland are dominant elements in these narratives. Accompanying each story is a short description of the setting and its distinctive natural fea- tures. Numerous photographs conveying Iceland’s en- chanting and breathtaking natural beauty allow a unique and intensive immersive experience in the fantastical worlds of Icelandic fairytales and legends.
