Description

Scottish Fairy and Folk Tales

by Sir George Douglas

Treasury of fanciful, picturesque narratives—assembled by noted folklorist and recounted in their native vernacular—tell of brownies, kelpies, mermen and other supernatural creatures that assist, annoy and otherwise meddle in the lives of simple Scottish country folk. A delightful collection of imaginative and entertaining nursery and fairy tales, animal fables, witchcraft lore, and stories with a comic twist.

IT is only within comparatively recent years that the homely stories in the mouths of the country-people have been constituted a branch of learning, and have had applied to them, as such, the methods and the terminology of science. No doubt a very noteworthy gain to knowledge has resulted from this treatment, a curious department of research has been opened up, and light has been cast upon various outside things of greater importance than the subject of study itself. But, side by side with this gain to knowledge, is there not, involved in the method of treatment indicated, a loss to the stories themselves? Classified, tabulated, scientifically named, they are no longer the wild free product of Nature that we knew and loved:they are become, so to speak, a collection of butterflies in a case, an album of pressed wild flowers.

About the Author:

"George Brisbane Scott Douglas (1856-1935) was a Scottish poet and writer, as well as a Baronet."
