      Teutonic
      Mythology
      by
      Jacob Grimm


      Vol. 1

      Teutonic Mythology

      by Jacob Grimm

      Volume 1

      Review


      Teutonic Mythology: Volume One is a landmark work on Germanic mythology. Originally written by Jacob Grimm, this is the first in a four volume series. This version is James Steven Stallybrass' English translation. .

      Teutonic Mythology reads primarily as an encyclopaedia. The author has divided the book into chapters which focus on a single topic or theme, for example "God", "Priests", "Other Gods" and many more. Within these chapters, Grimm examines and explains a wide range of sources that vary in both geographic origin and time period. The author has devoted a massive section of Volume One to a survey of the many ancient Germanic Gods and Goddesses. While these Gods were surely the principal actors in many fantastic stories, the focus of this book is not on these tales, but rather on the hunt for clues and sources in order to construct a more complete picture of Germanic mythology.

      While the subject matter may seem to lend itself to excitement, the treatment of this material is decidedly academic. This is a book about the construction of a Germanic mythology using what is known about Norse, Saxon, and the mythologies of other nearby peoples. Students and scholars of Germanic or Folklore studies will likely find this work to be invaluable.

      For the tremendous contribution Teutonic Mythology: Volume One makes to the understanding of Germanic mythology, this volume is highly recommended. It is thus at the discretion of the reader to determine whether Grimm's highly academic take will appeal to their literary preferences.

      Excerpt


      What Mr. Carlyle says of the Scandinavian will of course apply to all Teutonic tradition, so far as it can be recovered; and it was the task of Grimm in his Deutsche Mythologie to supplement the Scandinavian mythology (of which, thanks to the Icelanders, we happen to know most) with all that can be gleaned from other sources, high-dutch and low-dutch, and build it up into a whole. And indeed to prove that it was one connected whole; for, strange as it seems to us, forty years ago it was still considered necessary to prove it.

      Jacob Grimm was perhaps the first man who commanded a wide enough view of the Whole field of Teutonic languages and literature to be able to bring into a focus the scattered facts which show the prevalence of one system of thought among all the Teutonic nations from Iceland to the Danube. In this he was materially aided by his mastery of the true principles of Philology, which he was the first to establish on a firm scientific basis, and which enabled him to trace a word with certitude through the strangest disguises.
