I read this delightful group of stories about the year 2003, and then reread some in 2014 These many folk tales in 393 pages are grouped into the following sections Fairies, Origins and causes, Kings and heroes, Fabulous beasts, Nursery and jocular, Ghosts, Fables and animal tales, Giants and strong men, Historical, Saints and devils, and finally Enchantment This book constitutes a grand survey of this genre Many to be reread from time to time for the sheer enjoyment of the folk tale printed in this handsome edition Some remain cast in somewhat archaic language, a product of the source and time from which the tale was recorded One needs to know some medieval history of Britain so the personal names and place will provide meaning to one reading it today in a far distant country Yet the editor probably retained the old voice so as to convey the old primitive context within which the tales were passed on from generation to generation.A beautifully packaged book published 1985 by the Folio Society of England cover outstanding, wood engravings by Hannah Firmin serve as chapter headings are super, and the select ion of tales is varied and very engaging. How anyone can suck the life out of good, well known tales I do not know But here it is It is hard to pinpoint exactly what it is that makes this collection fall so short The writing is not technically bad, and the stories are at least told, but I find myself at the end of a tale thinking, What as if it never actually happened That s probably the most magical thing that happened while reading this. gjnn Nice cross section of British folktales some I already knew, others I d never heard of Some in dialect, others not Not just Great Britain but every isle from the Shetlands to Jersey Nice collection if you can find it. ok myths legends book Another of those folk tale type books I keep handy to read a few stories when I need a little bit of light reading. I thoroughly enjoyed The Magic Lands I love reading original folk tales and myths and this book puts 55 interesting British and Irish ones together.Each tale is short, some less than a page, some several pages long, so this is a perfect book for reading to children or to bring with you while you need to wait somewhere.As much as I enjoyed the stories, I am a historian at heart, so found myself going to the end to read the Sources and Notes section for each tale Crossley Holland has obviously done huge amounts of research in this area and tells us about where the stories first came from, where first recorded, and other interesting details.This is a great book for anyone wanting original tales written in accessible, modern language.
