A Devil, a Kratt, a Trupibut and Others. Meeting with Andrus Kivirähk

A Devil, a Kratt, a Trupibut and Others. Meeting with Andrus Kivirähk

Host: Anna Michalczuk-Podlecki

In Estonian folklore, the devil was known by various nicknames, such as Old Spitfire, Old Crosspatch and even Old Bachelor. It is clearly seen that what all his emanations had in common was advanced age. Kratts were creatures that people made from non-essential objects in order to breathe into them souls ransomed from the devil and make them domestic helpers. A Trupibut, on the other hand, was a ghost – powerful and terrible; so terrible that anyone who saw it dropped dead. This peculiar trinity appears – along with other protagonists – in Andrus Kivirähk’s novel Rehepapp ekh November. We will talk to the author about the importance of folklore for contemporary literature, the influence of fairy tales and fables on our collective imagination, as well as about the difference between the real and the imaginary, if there is any.
