Tales on two monumental labors: to define shamanism and to show that it underlies some Anglo-Saxon poetry. Applying anthropological studies of tribal peoples in modern times to intensive examinations of Beowulf, metrical charms, and decorative art, Glasecki finds not living shamanism, but embedded traces of already long-extinct beliefs and practices. The Old English passages are translated. Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or.
