Overview

Famed Anglo-Irish author, Lord Dunsany (1878-1957), was a short story writer, playwright, poet, essayist and autobiographer whose works earned him notoriety as one of the most significant contributors to the modern fantasy genre. His short stories, especially, were widely popular with audiences who enjoyed his formulated mythologies, his examination of the nature of time and human existence, and his satiric, and often anti-industrial, views on the relationship of humanity to nature. This edition includes: Dunsany's thirty-two "Tales of War," written during his time in the trenches in the bloody First World War, and recalling the horrors of war in vivid detail; "Fifty-One Tales," a collection of short fantasy stories which later influenced writers like J.R.R. Tolkien, H.P. Lovecraft and Ursula K. Le Guin; and finally a fourteen-piece collection called "Tales of Three Hemispheres," which concludes with the 3-piece series called "Beyond the Fields We Know."
