These myths and legends are so different from what I'm used to, there is so much randomness going on, or what seems random to someone like me.

It's a mix of storytelling and nonfiction (criticism).

........................

The old stories aren’t all goodness and light, but they have a certain dark grandeur to them.

.........................

The stories are diverse, containing much of the good and bad of both traditions.
