The Coming of the Fairies By Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

The Coming of the Fairies By Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

It was in this book that Doyle made the claim that photography had finally proved the existence of fairies, hence this is Doyle’s version of Elsie and Francis’s narrative.

It serves as an example of how individuals will believe whatever they want to, no matter how absurd it may appear to others.

Irish Fairy and Folk Tales By W.B. Yeats

In the late 1800s and early 1900s, a mystic poet, Yeats, toured around Ireland, asking people whether they had ever seen fairies and recording their experiences.

As a child, I couldn’t go into a forest without imagining that I was about to discover someone or something that had eluded me for a long time….” “Folk art,” according to Yates, is “the soil where all great art is based” because it contains the “simplest and most indelible ideas of generations” that have been “passed down among the cottages. It’s clear from his own work.
