Welsh Folklore by Elias Owen


SKU: 9781912368204 Categories: , ,


First chosen as winner of the National Eisteddfod in 1887, and subsequently revised for publication in 1896, Elias Owen’s study of Welsh folklore is a rich amalgam of scholarship and personal recollection. Concentrating on the northern districts of Wales, and with a wealth of tales and traditions concerning fairies, ghosts, devils, changelings, birds, beasts, spells, charms and cures, this is both an ideal companion to Wirt Sikes’s British Goblins or T. Gwynn Jones’s Welsh Folklore and Folk Custom, also published by Cockatrice, and a fascinating and accessible introduction to the folk tales and folklore of Wales.

Published as part of the Welsh Folklore series: fiction, translation and scholarship inspired by the rich folk heritage of Wales.
