The Hidden History of Elves and Dwarfs - Claude Lecouteux

£17.99Price

This new exploration of the 'little people' of ancient Europe draws on Germanic, Roman, Celtic and medieval sources. Working closely with the surviving evidence of belief, Lecouteux shows how representations and concepts of elves and dwarves changed over time, how people sought to propitiate them, and how they were understood to be involved with magic. He details their magical powers, smithcraft, and service with lords and heroes, and shows how much a part of everyday life they were. A fascinating read for lovers of European mythology and folklore. 

Rochester: Inner Traditions, 2018. Hardback with dustjacket, xiii+226 pages. New.
