Magic Words describes a world where humans and animals share bodies and
languages, where the world of the imagination mixes easily with the physical. It
began as a story that told how the Inuit people came to be and became a legend
passed from generation to generation. In translation it grew from myth to poem.
The text comes from expedition notes recorded by Danish explorer Knud
Rasmussen in 1921. Edward Field got a copy from the Harvard Library and
translated it into English.
