Emerson's collection of Welsh fairy tales reveals a somewhat surprising character when compared with other books of fairy tales. These are often extremely short and portray less bipolar dimensions of good and evil. There is a gritty survival quality that makes them intriguing as hero and villain mix into these somehow likeale if not loveable characters.
