Romance of the Faery Melusine - Gareth Knight
This work retells the French medieval legend of the faery Melusine. First rendered into written form in a text by Jean d'Arras in 1393, the legend is well established in France, where Melusine is credited with having founded the family, town and castle of Lusignan. However, Melusine and her story are little-known in the English-speaking world. Here Gareth Knight's version is based on a tranlation from Andre Lebey's 1920s novel Le Roman de la Melusine. it is a treasure for the Englisih speaker, brought straight from the French esoteric faery tradition.
