While best known for his poetry, William Butler Yeats (1865-1939) was also a dedicated exponent of Irish folklore who took a particular interest in the tales' mythic and magical roots. He was, in fact, a ceremonial magician and leader in the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, one of the most important esoteric orders in the Western magical tradition. Yeats' influence on other occultists imparted a decidedly Celtic flavor to their practices, just as The Celtic Twilight drew a wider audience to the eerie and puckish world of fairies, ghosts, and spirits. Its title refers to the pre-dawn hours, when the Druids performed their rituals; and the work serves as an affirmation of Yeats' belief in magic as a doorway to the Celtic past. "This handful of dreams," as the author referred to it, first appeared in 1893, and consists of stories recounted to the poet by his friends, neighbors, and acquaintances. Yeats' faithful transcription of their narratives includes his own visionary experiences, appended to the storytellers' words as a form of commentary. Book jacket.… (mais)

This collection of Irish folklore feels somewhat repetitive in relation to the Yeats volume I read earlier and that took me two tries to finish. Maybe I would have had a different experience if I’d read this one first. And because the stories are filtered through Yeats’s retelling (we don’t experience the stories as first- or even third-person narrative; he’s always there telling the story), it kept me at a distance and I didn’t feel engaged with the stories.

EL CREPUSCULO CELTA

Hdas, duendes, brujas,y bosques encantados pueblan estos cuentos maravillosos
que Yeats recopiló en la provincia donde pasó su infancia y que sehan convertido
en un referente ineludible para los amantes de la mitología celta.

This has such an evocative title, I've wanted to read it for decades. I'd expected it to be a lyrical celebration of the folkloric traditions of Ireland, and those parts of it that were that, I found the best. For the rest, it was a collection of brief outlines of fairly typical folkloric tales, interspersed with some slightly longer stories, some of which were interesting. A slightly disappointing read, but still worthwhile. ( )

Tales of Irish folklore collected by W.B. Yeats in 1893, as told to him by friends and aquaintances - an interesting look at the traditions and superstitions of a bygone age. ( )
