The "Kalevala" was compiled in the 19th century by Finnish physician, folklorist and philologist Elias Lönnrot from ballads and lyric poems collected from oral tradition in his home country. Finland had been occupied and at various times ruled by other countries for hundreds of years, and the visibility of a national identity was precious.
