This is a collection of stories about Greek fairies. Similar to the northern fairies, they are not adverse to interacting with mortals. However, there is always some proviso, such as the fairy bride who is forbidden to speak, and drives her husband mad (The Fairy Mother). The tragedy can also turn the other way, such as the fairy maiden exiled from the fairy palace by one kiss from a mortal (The Fairy Comb). Chapters include: The Fairy-Hunter; Fairy Gardens; The Fairy Wife; Fairies Of The Waterfall; The Fairy Comb; A Fairy Wedding; The Fairy Ring; The Fairies' Theft; The Haunted Ship; The Wonder Of Skoupa; The First Of May; and, The Fairy Mother.
This book has 63 pages in the PDF version, and was originally published in 1930.
Production notes: This e-book of Fairy Tales of Modern Greece was published by Global Grey in 2019.
