Norske Folkeeventyr
Inspired by the example of the Grimm brothers,
Peter Christen Asbjørnsen and Jørgen Moe
collected Norwegian fairy and folk tales. They
published the collection as Norske
Folkeeventyr (Norwegian Folk Tales 1845-52).
In a joint letter from 1844, they describe how
“an early acquaintance with your honorable
Kinder- und Hausmärchen, and an intimate
knowledge of the lore and life of the people in
our homeland, gave us the idea … of preparing
a collection of Norwegian folk tales.”
Norske Folkeeventyr
Women apparently tended to narrate deep,
mystical, and eerie themes, while men related
humorous, sometimes bawdy stories.
The best known characters are trolls and
Askeladden, the Ash-lad.
The collection was part of the project of
European Romanticism to investigate and
document the unique cultural heritage of
nations.
It was (and remains) extremely popular in
Norway.
