The Fairy Faith in Celtic Countries
Available in Stock
This classic survey of tales about ‘the other-world of the Celtic race’ was first published in 1911; it is based both on Celtic literature and on oral traditions from the British Isles and Brittany, which Evans Wentz helped to record. As he seeks an ordering principle for these survivals of ancient beliefs he applies theories from anthropology, comparative religion and psychical research. This reprint features a new foreword by poet and Yeats scholar Kathleen Raine.
