Um bókina
«The Seal Woman» legend reflects how people in a fishing and farming community some centuries back viewed life, at the time when the legend was a part of the oral storytelling tradition. The legend, however, can be dislodged from its location in this historical and cultural context and be placed within human experience today. «The Seal Woman» leads us into semantic spaces circling around desire, love, being different, having to create a new identity, longing, grief, forgiveness and punishment. The story about the seal woman also garners a great variety of meanings and significances today, just as it likely has done for people in the 19th century when the legend was put into in writing.
