English Translations of the Scandinavian Medieval Ballads is the first nearly complete record of the translations into English of any major folk genre. The English-speaking world has made these ballads a major Scandinavian literature in translation, in part finding there its own primitive past. Here translations are seen as cross-cultural dialogue and placed within the empirical discipline of Translation Studies.
