Description
Tales of fairies, witches, holy wells, knights and mysterious creatures in over 120 enthralling Irish tales and lore, re-told by accomplished poet and folklorist Lady Jane Wilde (1821-96), mother of Oscar Wilde. The book has black-and-white illustrations, and the captivating stories include omens ‘that forbode evil’, a charm to attract bees, and the history of seasonal festivals. The text presents a faithful republication of the folk stories gathered in the original 1887 work, ‘Ancient Legends, Mystic Charms and Superstitions of Ireland’; the present edition is abridged to leave out two essay chapters by Sir William Wilde which appeared in the original book. Delve into the ethereal world of Irish folklore and see what you can find.
