Written in the musical speech of the poet's home region of Kiltartan, County Galway, this collection of stories centers on country schoolmaster Red Hanrahan and his supernatural experiences. William Butler Yeats recounts "The Twisting of the Rope," "Red Hanrahan's Curse," "Hanrahan’s Vision," and other enchanting tales.
Additional fables include those of The Secret Rose
and Rosa Alchemica,
featuring Yeats's personal interpretations of Celtic mythology and occult legends. These engaging fantasies will particularly appeal to those with a taste for Celtic/Irish stories, fairy tales, and yarns with an air of the mystic.
