Yesterday I read Through the Faerie Glass by Kenny Klein a book I had high hopes for and very much wanted to like Unfortunately it didn t live up to my expectations I decided to review it here to share my thoughts on it with everyone This book is a truly mixed bag with good material and points side by side with bad One of the most frustrating things when reading it is that the author often states information without any references of sources leaving the reader unable to track down how factual something is or what an idea is based on His bibliography is extensive but random with everything from the Rees s Celtic Heritage and Yeats to the Bible and modern fiction novels It is also difficult at many points to follow what the author is saying as he will make one statement at one point and then a contradictory statement later he goes around and around about the Fey being human folk memories of people meeting primitive peoples or being Gods or being supernatural for example intermixing theories together and stating them each on their own He is particularly set on the Faeries being the ancient Picts who were driven into the hills he says by the Celts and their iron technology although he also says the Picts themselves may be Otherworldly magical shamanic etc This theory was a pet one of Gerald Gardner and featured in the novel The Mists of Avalon but there is absolutely no evidence archaeological or folkloric to support the idea Looking at the good points first the book starts with a warning against the Victorian view of faeries and advises that the Fey are complex and potentially dangerous than little garden sprites The book also includes excerpts of many traditional pieces including the Ballad of True Thomas Tam Lin and other traditional folk songs or poems about faeries The book also includes some good genuine folklore and belief that can often be ignored in other modern books like the Selkies marrying human husbands or the Fey stealing children and brides Now intermixed within the good we see the bad I ve already mentioned his belief that the Picts were the Faeries and this becomes the crux of several problematic points He says the words fairies and pixies are directly from the term Picts which is just not etymologically sound Pict is from the Latin for painted pixie is of unknown origin and fairy is from the Latin for fateHe states that the Irish word Sidhe means mound dweller it means fairy hill and is derived from the name for the Picts who lived he claims in underground homes He states that iron is a good protection against faeiries true but he says its because the Picts would have feared the strange new metal or else associated it with death and warfare He also claims that the reported time difference between our world and Fairyland comes from Celts who visited with the Picts and ingested psychogenic plants that distorted their sense of time creating a false sense of being in another world because he says the Picts were shamans who used psychotropic plants and apparently gave them out to untrained visitors Getting away from the Pictish nonsense he also is very fond of the idea that Gods are actually fairies a reverse of what many fairy faith and Celtic pagans believe So instead of the gods being reduced into fairies or put into the category of the aos sidhe he says that the gods are fairies themselves along the lines of traditional pixies selkies etc He says that Rhiannon is an underworld horse fairy Cerridwen is a bird fairy because in her myth she turns into a bird twice and the SumerianHebrew goddess Lilith is an owl fairy Surprisingly Llew is not a bird fairy but a Sun God so maybe its especially goddesses Although he does say Odin is a fairy and that Tyr is Odin so I don t know Which sums up a lot of this book His section on Samhain is comic with a very interesting discussion about how the Celts believed that Death capital D was wandering around on Samhain and could freely take anyone It felt like So he says the Celts dressed up as ghosts to trick Death into thinking they d already kicked it and they placed lit turnips in front of their homes to signal that Death had already been there Because apparently he thinks that Death leaves a glowing turnip as a Death was here marker I assume so that It isn t wasting It s time going back to the same houses It s already been to I found this extremely funny The author also mixes in a lot of Middle Eastern and Hebrew material with the Celtic and talks a lot about Greek Nymphs and Dryads in a Celtic context which I thought was a bit odd but neither good nor bad Alright the bit about Druids sleeping by streams to receive inspiration from naiads was bad and that bit about Cailleach bheara being the title of the banshee when she takes the form of a deerum yeah that was kind of painful Anyway I wouldn t recommend it There are good points but not nearly enough to outweigh the awful I m not going to bother with the second book about Fairy Tale rituals I m kind of surprised there is a second book but I guess people who don t know better can t discern the uality of the material Or they just don t care Quilting

    (E–pub READ) [Through the Faerie Glass] I like Kenny's approach with this book and I do like the casualness of it Especially right now when I don't want anything too literary It's like a conversation with Kenny He did do his research and I understand his dilemma of having to include so much in so small a book I have other books on fairies and they are exactly what he explained in the beginning the cute little tinkerbells However I don't think he was being overly negative I think
