The Fairy Mythology of Shakespeare: Now Available!
This short work is partially based on a lecture given by the author some time prior, which was then edited with a bibliographic appendix and some additional explanatory material.
It traces the history of the fairy in imagery from multiple sources to Shakespeare, drawing heavily (but not solely) on Grimm, pointing out the combination origin of Shakespeares' usage, being a fusion of lore from his own era, as well as material from up to some centuries prior. Both academic and interesting, and a must-read for the more spiritually minded theater fan.
