Flaptekst / Beschrijving
This anthology presents Sámi oral and written texts from the last four hundred years – Sámi narratives and poetry relating creation of the world, the inhabitation of Sápmi, and vivid accounts of how the Sámi have fought against colonization and assimilation. Beginning with the two seventeenth-century yoik poems that became renowned in Europe and inspired famous authors like Goethe, and continuing to prose and poetry of recent decades, the anthology highlights an enduring and distinctive Sámi voice in the world of literature.
