The main themes explored in these ballads are love and death. Suicide, murder, natural causes. There are mythical creatures such as mermaids and water sprites. There is magic. But no true fairy tale is complete without love and death. For anyone that hasn't read the original Grimm's fairy tales, you may be surprised at how gruesome they can be.
This book is fairly short, consisting of ten ballads. It's very interesting how Lord Peter and Little Kerstin go from brother and sister to lovers in different ballads. I also found it very interesting that it was mostly Little Kerstin that did the dying (rather than Lord Peter, though I believe he did die in one of the ballads).
If you enjoy narrative poetry, you would likely enjoy reading these. If you enjoy folk tales, you would probably enjoy these.
Overall I really liked reading Lord Peter and Little Kerstin. It's not a read for everyone. But if it's something you're into, then you should definitely read it.
