The Smith who could not get into Hell part 2

The smith stood by all the time watching Him.

“You’re not such a bad smith, after all,” he said.

“Do you think so?” said Our Lord.

Soon after the smith’s mother came to tell him dinner was ready. She was old and wrinkled, bent double, and barely able to walk.

“Now you mark carefully what you see,” said Our Lord, and He took the old woman, put her into the forge, and changed her into a beautiful young girl.

“I repeat what I’ve said,” said the smith, “you’re quite a smith.

Peter Christen Asbjornsen (1812—1878)

Jorgen Moe (1813—1880)

Both Asbjornsen and Moe came from the country, and belonged to families in modest circumstances. They made friends while preparing for a university career. Influenced by the Grimms, they set out to study the folklore of their country, and in their first collection of tales, which appeared in 1841, they produced a work of striking interest and genuine originality. “This vdlume,” says John Gade, “was perhaps the greatest single event in the whole movement of that generation toward a more truly national culture.”

The Smith Who Could Not Get Into Hell is a highly artistic treatment of a bit of ancient folklore. It is reprinted, in the translation by Helen and John Gade, from Norwegian Fairy Tales, American-Scandinavian Foundation, New York, 1924, by permission of the Foundation.

Among the most colourful customs in the Bulgarian Calendar of traditions are the Kukeri Games.
