About the Author

Though during his lifetime the Irish nobleman Lord Edward John Moreton Drax Plunkett, the 18th Baron Dunsany, was perhaps regarded as a minor talent, his somber short fantasies and novels had a significant impact on the development of fantasy and horror fiction. In real life, Dunsany was as mostrar mais interesting and versatile as anyone about whom he wrote. He was an African big-game hunter, a soldier in both the Boer War and World War I, and was wounded in the 1916 Irish Easter Rebellion. He was also the national chess champion of Ireland. Dunsany's first short story collection, The Gods of Pegana, was published in 1905 and was soon followed by other fantasy anthologies, including Time and the Gods (1906) and The Sword of Welleran and Other Stories (1908), among others. These stories are distinguished by their elegant, fairy tale settings and Dunsany's unique, macabre sense of humor. Dunsany's novels, such as The King of Elfland's Daughter (1924) and The Charwoman's Shadow (1926), are considered fantasy classics. Although Dunsany wrote prodigiously and with great versatility throughout his life, many regard his early, highly stylized short fiction to be his best work, and his most important.

I found it most interesting that, in the end, the vicar can only appeal to a sense of community rather than to the idea that his religion conforms to a metaphysical truth.

Cute premise and fairly suavely executed by Dunsany but one of the all time worst cop-out endings. I love dogs. Why are dog books always so disappointing?

The movie version with Sam Neil and Peter O’Toole in his last role is great, by the way.

O uomo, quando vedi la cometa, sappi che qualcuno cerca oltre te e non scoprirà mai nulla.

Dunsany, ossia l’abbecedario del genere fantasy...



Vengano, signore e signori che in qualche modo sono stanchi di Londra, vengano con me anche coloro che sono arcistufi del mondo che conosciamo: perché abbiamo nuovi mondi, qui.

(7)



Quale non fu la loro gioia, anche in quel pericoloso frangente, mentre si nascondevano fra il guardiano e l’abisso, scoprendo che lo scrigno conteneva quindici odi incomparabili in strofe alcaiche, cinque sonetti di gran lunga I più perfetti del mondo, nove stupende ballate in stile provenzale che non avevano eguali nelle antologie degli uomini, una poesia dedicata a un lepidottero in ventotto stanze perfette, un frammento di oltre cento versi sciolti talmente sublimi che non potevano essere stati scritti da un uomo, e da ultimo quindici liriche che nessun mercante avrebbe osato prezzare.

(23-4)



E quanto alla donna – chi mai potrà conoscerla? - il suo fato è scritto, come quello dell’uomo, da divinità incuranti e indifferenti, I cui volti scrutano altre sfere.

(41)



Tutti sapevano a Merimna che le figure allineate lungo I bastioni erano soltanto statue di pietra, eppure una speranza albergava in alcuni che un giorno gli antichi eroi sarebbero ritornati, perché nessuno li aveva mai visti morire.

Si deve sapere che nel paese degli Elfi i colori sono molto più intensi dei nostri e che l’aria stessa brilla di una tale profonda luminosità che tutto ciò che si vede ha qualcosa dell’aspetto dei nostri alberi e dei nostri fiori, riflessi in acqua, nel mese di giugno.

Ho detto che il tempo non esisteva in Elflandia. …

In quella eterna bellezza sognante, in quell’atmosfera dolcissima, non esiste né cambiamento, né decadenza, né morte, nulla e nessuno cerca la felicità nel movimento, nel cambiare o in cose nuove, ma nell’estasi della continua contemplazione di tutta quella magnificenza che esiste da sempre, con la stessa intensità di quando venne creata per virtù di incantesimi e di poesia.

“Vi darei più volentieri una formula contro l’acqua per assetare il mondo, piuttosto che contro il canto degli uccelli che la sera ascolta, appena mormorato sui crinali di una collina, troppo fioco per orecchie troppo sveglie, un canto che vive nei sogni e di sogni, che ci narra di antiche guerre e di perduti amori degli spiriti dei fiumi.

(424-5)

(432)



...Tennyson:

Non dentro il mondo attivo ma neppure

di là da esso sta il giardino che amo.
