In 1880, when Victorian preoccupation with fairies was in full bloom, (The Folklore Society having just been founded in 1878). Everyone was crazy about fairies, and William Wirt Sikes had the skill, the inclination and the opportunity to turn his complete attention to the subject. We are thus treated to both an unfiltered view of how the Victorians approached and understood fairy lore and we are afforded a reliable account of the fairy lore that was then current. For those interested in Victorian life and thought, and who are willing to read between the lines, this book is a real find. And for those most interested in getting closer to the source and just enjoying Welsh folklore, fairy mythology, legends and traditions this book is a bonanza.
