Product description

About the Author

Lang was born in Selkirk. He was the eldest of the eight children born to John Lang, the town clerk of Selkirk, and his wife Jane Plenderleath Sellar, who was the daughter of Patrick Sellar, factor to the first duke of Sutherland. On 17 April 1875, he married Leonora Blanche Alleyne, youngest daughter of C. T. Alleyne of Clifton and Barbados. She was (or should have been) variously credited as author, collaborator, or translator of Lang's Color/Rainbow Fairy Books which he edited.
He was educated at Selkirk Grammar School, Loretto, and at the Edinburgh Academy, St Andrews University and at Balliol College, Oxford, where he took a first class in the final classical schools in 1868, becoming a fellow and subsequently honorary fellow of Merton College. He soon made a reputation as one of the most able and versatile writers of the day as a journalist, poet, critic, and historian. In 1906, he was elected FBA.
He died of angina pectoris at the Tor-na-Coille Hotel in Banchory, Banchory, survived by his wife. He was buried in the cathedral precincts at St Andrews.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Journey to the Magical World of Fairy Tales
Reviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on January 11, 2021
Fairy tales are always an invitation to a world of magic and wonder ,where animals talk like humans and ordinary human beings exhibit extraordinary powers and abilities. Andrew Lang's The Orange Fairy Book is no different. First published in 1906, this current edition has been revised and updated for the modern reader. The one thing that makes this book different from other fairy tales collections is its cultural diversity beyond the usual western-centric fare. The stories here are taken from many countries and are originally in many languages: French, Italian, Spanish, Catalan, Gaelic, Icelandic, Cherokee, African, Indian, Australian, Slavic, Eskimo, etc. There are many recurrent narrative motifs: the journey of the hero toward wisdom, the tests of a hero's moral character and physical character, the struggle between good and evil, between overwhelming odds and cunning, etc. The descriptions are usually hyperbolic, out of this world, and the incidents are no less unbelievable and extraordinary. Therein lies their magic and attraction. The Story of the King Who Would See Paradise. The Story of the Hero Makono, How Isuro the Rabbit Tricked Guido. The Adventures of a Jackal. And at the end of each story hides a moral lesson: about the virtue of patience, the rewards of kindness and good deed.
