Sinopsis:

This volume contains James Stephen’s fantastic fairy tale, "The Crock of Gold". A fusion of philosophy and Irish folklore, "The Crock of Gold" revolves around the events that unfolded when the god Pan appeared on the Emerald Isle. How Angus Og reacts to Pan's arrival, and what happens to the Daughter of Murrachu who becomes caught in the turmoil, are the questions that drive this humorous and charming tale. Complete with magic, fairies and leprechauns, this timeless book would make for a great addition to the family collection, and it is not to be missed by fans of Stephen’s work. James Stephens (1880 - 1950) was an Irish novelist and poet famous for his humorous retellings of Irish myths and fairy tales. Many vintage texts such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive, and it is with this in mind that we are republishing this book now, in an affordable, high-quality, modern edition. It comes complete with a specially commissioned biography of the author.

Review:

Meehawl MacMurrachu's old skinny cat kills a robin redbreast on the roof one day, forging the first link in a long, peculiar chain of events. For the robin redbreast is the particular bird of the Leprecauns of Gort na Gloca Mora, and the Leprecauns retaliate by stealing Meehawl MacMurrachu's wife's washing-board, and Meehawl asks the Philosopher who lives in the center of the pine wood called Coilla Doraca for advice in locating the washboard...and the chain leads on and on, up to Angus Og himself and to the country of the gods. Unique and inimitable, this is one of the great tales of our century.
