Product Description

Charles Stanley Causley, CBE, FRSL (24 August 1917 - 4 November 2003) was a Cornish poet, schoolmaster and writer. His work is noted for its simplicity and directness and for its associations with folklore, especially when linked to his native Cornwall. The Legend of The Fairy Calf (Knocksheogowna in Irish ), was published in 1825 by Thomas Crofton Croker in "Fairy Legends of the South of Ireland". A story about a hill that is haunted by maleveloent fairies has here inspired both rawings of beauty & imagination by a young Dutch artist and incantatory poetry of immediate appeal from Charles Causley. It is verse that is designed to be read aloud
