About This Item: 
A wide-ranging and appealingly fairy-sized treasury of fantastical poems from across the centuries and around the world Fascination with fairies spans centuries and cultures. With ancient roots in pagan belief, fairies have long populated mythology, folklore, and oral and written poetry. They have seen repeated surges of renewed popularity from the Renaissance to the present fantasy-besotted moment. Elves, changelings, leprechauns, pixies, brownies, and sprites, England's Queen Mab, France's Melusine, Scandinavian nixies, and Scottish selkies: these magical creatures are sometimes mischievous, sometimes dangerous, but always enchanting. This collection brings together a diverse array of literary fairies: here are Spenser's Faerie Queene, Shakespeare's Titania, and Keats's "La Belle Dame Sans Merci, " but also Arthur Rimbaud's "Fairy, " Goethe's Erlking, Claude McKay's "Snow Fairy, " Denise Levertov's "Elves, " Sylvia Plath's "Lorelei, Christopher Okigbo's Watermaid, and Neil Gaiman's The Fairy Reel." Everyman's Library pursues the highest production standards, printing on acid-free cream-colored paper, with full-cloth cases with two-color foil stamping, decorative endpapers, silk ribbon markers, European-style half-round spines, and a full-color illustrated jacket.
