Title: The King of Elfland's Daughter
By: Dunsany, Lord
Call #: Fiction Dunsa.E
This is one of the early classics of fantasy literature, with a huge influence on writers of the genre as a whole. The story is familiar – a mortal man marries a fairy princess – but it continues well past the “happily ever after,” and the writing and language are lyrical and haunting. A truly beautiful and timeless book!
