Description

Fairy and Folk Tales of the Irish Peasantry

Edited and Selected by W. B. Yeats

"This is an anthology of Irish folklore, edited by W. B. Yeats. Many of these stories are from books which are archived at this site; some are from books which have yet to be converted to etext or now-rare source material. He selected many of the best (and often funniest) tales from other writers such as Lady Wilde, Croker, Lover, Hyde, and Carelton. Yeats wrote introductory material and notes to many of these stories. "

But now in the times of James, they had all gone, for "they were of the old profession", and "their songs were Ave Maries". In Ireland they are still extant, giving gifts to the kindly, and plaguing the surly. "Have you ever seen a fairy or such like?" I asked the old man in County Sligo. "Amn't I annoyed with them, " was the answer. "Do the fishermen along here know anything of the mermaids?" I asked a woman of a village in County Dublin. 'Indeed, they don't like to see them at all, " she answered, "for they always bring bad weather." "Here is a man who believes in ghosts, " said a foreign sea-captain, pointing to a pilot of my acquaintance. "In every house over there, " said the pilot, pointing to his native village of Rosses, "there are several."
