Fairies and Magic in Shakespeare's England


What were fairies really like in Shakespeare's time? Was "A Midsummer Night's Dream" a dream or a nightmare? Join Dan Harms for an exploration of the fairy lore found in the magical manuscripts, literature, and folklore of the sixteenth and seventeenth century. Read a manuscript account of a man who met fairies, meet some of the most prominent fairies and magicians, and learn to make a ritual meal for the fairies.


Dan Harms is a librarian and author who has published three editions of magical texts through Llewellyn – The Long-Lost Friend, The Book of Oberon, and Of Angels, Demons, and Spirits.
