A very enjoyable and lively collection of fantastic, quaint tales collected by Yeats from various sources. They are arranged topically by the type of fantasty element: leprechauns, witches, giants, etc. This makes some read too similar, but owning the book and dipping in over a few months has been a real joy. Many tales are much more absurdist and even modernistic than I woud have expected.
