EPISODE DESCRIPTION

Every corner of the Earth has it own myths & legends. Stories that have been passed down through the generations, hundreds and even thousands of years in the making. Derived from a time before the written word when warnings, omens, and tales of heroes & villains were shared by word of mouth through storytelling.

I love this world where the impossible to believe might actually have been possible and I would like to introduce you to it.

Join me for this series of podcasts as I share with you the characters, myths and legends of the world we live in.

“Nowhere in the nineteenth century did interest in folklore and mythology have a more thorough revival than in Ireland. There, in 1887, Lady Francesca Speranza Wilde, Oscar Wilde’s mother and a well-known author in her own right, compiled this collection of charming, authentic folk tales.”
— excerpt from Dover (2006) unabridged republication of Ancient Legends, Mystic Charms, & Superstitions of Ireland, originally published by Chatto and Windus, London, 1919.368pp. 5 3/8 X 8 ½. Paperbound.

Over the next couple of episodes, I will read to you some of these myths, legends and superstitions. Keep in mind that Lady Wilde made this collection in 1887, more than 126 years ago, as you listen to the stories told in her words.

And now, without further delay, I bring to you from Ireland...Episode One - "The Dead."
