Overview

Born and educated in Dublin, Ireland, William Butler Yeats discovered early in his literary career a fascination with Irish folklore and the occult. Later awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1923, Yeats produced a vast collection of stories, songs, and poetry of Ireland's historical and legendary past. These writings helped secure for Yeats recognition as a leading proponent of Irish nationalism and Irish cultural independence. Originally published in two separate books near the end of the nineteenth century, these tales have preserved a rich and charming heritage in a charmingly authentic Irish voice. In this volume, extraordinary characters of Irish myth are brought to life through the brilliant poetic voice of W.B. Yeats. These legendary stories of capricious Trooping Fairies, the frightful Banshee, Kings and Queens, Giants, Devils and the ever popular Leprechaun will delight and entertain readers of all ages.

Okay...it was a little darker than what I was expecting. I couldn't read most of the short stories to my kids for fear of giving them nightmares.

I bought this book on a whim last year, and I've never regretted it! This is a fantastic compilation of a variety of Irish tales, from fairies to changelings to ghosts to witches to Tyr Na Nog to kings and queens. I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys fairy and folk tales.

A collection of Irish Folk Lore, and if you're interested in such things, you'll like this. For some of them, you'll need a score card, but I find them interesting.

Arrived quickly, so shipping service was excellent but overall rating is good because of the condition of the book compared to the description. Am disappointed in condition of book. The description was as follows: "Condition: Good This book has a light amount of wear to the pages, cover and binding. Blue Cloud Books ??? Hot deals from the land of the sun." Bought it from Thrift Books through the Blue Cloud Bookstore. Book was pretty badly damaged from mold on cover, binding and every page. But for $1.99...what else can u expect?
