About the Author

Andrew Lang (1844–1912) was a Scottish writer, poet, and critic, renowned for his work in anthropology and as a collector of folk and fairy tales. A prolific author, Lang's literary craftsmanship is exemplified in his poetry collection 'New Collected Rhymes' (1905), which echoes his diverse interests and erudition. Born in Selkirk, Lang was educated at St Andrews University and Balliol College, Oxford. He soon distinguished himself with a wide intellectual purview, encompassing history, mythology, and literary criticism. Lang's approach to retelling folk stories, avoiding the didactic to preserve their enchanting qualities, is reflected in his famous 'Fairy Books' series, which gained him international recognition as a master of folklore compilation. Integrating his poetic sensibility with a scholarly perspective, Lang's contributions to literature extend beyond his verses to his pivotal role in the development of psychical research and his notable works such as 'Myth, Ritual and Religion' (1887) and 'Custom and Myth' (1884). His literary style, marked by a deft and imaginative use of language, has made his works enduring classics, inviting readers into the rich tapestries of cultural myth and poetry.
