The Nobel prize-winning Irish poet and dramatist here presents a collection of supernatural writings based on his own research and fieldwork in folklore. Originally published in 1902, this is the second edition of Yeats’s work, to which several chapters were added following further research. Yeats intended to reveal a vision of the face of Ireland, and his collection of forty folk tales will appeal to any enthusiast of the country and its people. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
