Fairy and Folk Tales of the Irish Peasantry by W.B. Yeats
About the Author
William Butler Yeats, June 13, 1865 - January 28, 1939 born and educated in Dublin, an Irish poet and dramatist. Beginning in his youth, he studied poetry and from an early age was intrigued by both Irish legends and the occult. Yeats is known as one of the foremost figures of 20th Century literature.
This is a great source of information on Irish mythology and Ireland’s relationship with the fairy realm. Very insightful and highly recommended to anyone interested in Irish folklore and fairy magic.
