    The translator, Eino Friberg, (1907-1995) was struck blind at the age of seven. Maybe that explains, in part, why his translation has such pleasing oral qualities; it is storytelling rather than deskwork. The book has an introduction by George Schoolfield as well as one by the translator. It's Index of Names is invaluable. This book will be one the most beloved treasure in anyone's bookshelf. A true piece of world literature.
