5.0 étoiles sur 5 A treasure to Ireland and all who love her 28 janvier 2016
Par seagull - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This volume (and other compilations by Yeats) stands out head and shoulders above other books on Irish folk and fairy tales. Yeat's mission was to compile and preserve the traditional tales and folk spirit of the people of his Island, and who better than Ireland's most famous poet to have an ear for language and a good tale? The reviewer who complained that because of the archaic dialect this wasn't an "easy read" is missing the point. That said, if one takes the time, one can "enter into" the dialect, hear it lilting in your mind, and access these wonderful tales fairly readily.

I own a number of volumes of Irish folk and fairy tales and this is the most complete. I love the fact that this book, and Yeats' other volumes, draws upon tales he collected himself from the Irish peasantry of his day. Many of them are traditional tales long told through the years; others are personal experiences of the narrator. Some of them became themes in Yeats' own poetry. What a great gift to the Irish people, to those of us like myself who are of Irish heritage, and to all who appreciate the wonderful old Irish tales.

Are you kidding me? One of the essential reasons I buy printed books is they are supposed to be easier and more convenient to read then their electronic versions. Well, it looks like that, to save money and to maximize profits, the publishers of this version/edition, framed the entire book in 96 pages of letter size paper, unformatted an in 7 points size typeface! THE BOOK BECAME UNREADABLE! I could read this book for free anywhere online or electronic, but I wanted to read a physical book. SHAME ON WHOEVER PUBLISHED THIS EDITION!
4.0 étoiles sur 5 Fun Variety of Tales 13 décembre 2016

I enjoyed most of the stories collected here, and I thought T. Crofton Croker had the best of the lot. Soul Cages was my favorite, but Master & Man and Daniel O'Rourke were also creative. The banshee tales were sleep-inducing with realistic but tedious exposition (like some Edgar Allan Poe short stories). Yeats tries to sort the tales into categories, adding a bit of background before each section, but it seems to me that a lot of these tales defy such easy organization. For instance, the Kildare Pooka seems to me to be more of a "brownie" creature (functionally) vs. the creature featured in Douglas Hyde's The Piper & the Puca. But, hey, that's why this is a book of folklore and not a coherent mythological system. I also noted some of Patrick Kennedy's tales are virtually the same as similar tales found in the Brothers Grimm, but I would say upwards of 90% of the tales in this collection were stories I hadn't encountered before.

Also, there really was no leprechaun tale here, but we're informed they are of the "solitary fairy" type and so can be expected to wear red jackets, not green as is commonly supposed. But don't fret, there are plenty of fun tales here even without leprechauns! There are witches, pucas, cluricauns (alcoholic leprechauns), enchanted pudding, and all sorts of craziness. Plus, half the fun of reading these is immersing yourself in the charming writing style.

There are a handful of poems, too, but I skipped them and just read the stories.

Yeats was deeply interested in the folk history of his native island, and how the fairy faith manifested in his day. The old tongue was still spoken in corners of Ireland, and he listened to tales told by peat fires on cold winter evenings. Some of it may be nostalgia, but a lot of it spoke to the oppression of the people under foreign governance, and their isolation from the rest of Europe. Yeats's hermetic pursuits influenced his brilliant and precise poetry.

We will be traveling to Ireland later this year. It is always nice to get a feel for the folklore of a country. Very interesting stories.
