Excerpt from Celtic Folk and Fairy Tales

In making my selection I have chiefly tried to make the stories characteristic. It would have been easy, especially from Kennedy, to have made up a volume entirely filled with Grimm's Goblins a la Celtique. But one can have too much even of that very good thing, and I have therefore avoided as far as possible the more familiar formula of folk-tale literature.
