Below Sleive-na-mon: Tales of Darby O\'Gill & the Good People
ISBN: 0872432599

ISBN-13: 9780872432598

A good tale should not be forgotten, and these Darby O’Gill stories are fine tales indeed. Here you will find the sorrows, the good points and prejudices of the country people of old Ireland, all hung out in public like laundry flapping in the wind. This classic collection of Irish fairy stories written by Herminie Templeton Kavanagh at the beginning of the last century is a forgotten gem of literature, a work of great interest not only to anyone fond of Irish culture and folklore, but also to anyone who enjoys a good story. But, dear reader, be forewarned, for as Darby himself cautions: "The pleasures the Good People’ll share with you have a sore sorrow hid in them, an’ the gifts they’ll offer are only made to break hearts."

The editor has not changed a word of these colorful tales but has annotated the text for greater understanding and easier reading. This gift edition has many rich illustrations by artists of the Golden Age of Fairy Tales, including Garth Jones, Edmund J. Sullivan, John R. Neil and Howard Pyle.

David Coomler is a writer and researcher drawn from an early age to the old, the obscure, and the oddly interesting. He is the author of The Icon Handbook: A Guide to Understanding Icons and the Liturgy, Symbols and Practices of the Russian Orthodox Church and Hokku — Writing Traditional Haiku in English: The Gift to Be Simple.
