BROOME, DORA
More Fairy Tales from the Isle of Man
Norris Modern P. 1970. Paperback. This is a very enjoyable collection of stories about the "Li'l Boys" - Themselves- and the wonder of the Isle of Man. Although the author was attempting to collect stories of the sea, as she expresses in the beginning, most of the stories end up being about people living near the sea- only the first is totally of the sea, where a tailor gets paid for his work by a merman. They are the typical magic of fairy tales- but there is nothing typical of the magic of fairy tales. It brings to life something deep inside of us, as we witness the allegory and symbolism which is life. Some of the tales are more optimistic, where the girl sees Themselves in The Fairy Fair and is not trapped by their enticement of sweets. (For, as we all know if you eat with Themselves, the little people, you will remain trapped with them forever!) Others have a sadness about them, such as The Li'l Boys of the Sloc, where the daughter is taken from the fishermen for seven years. Likewise, there is a melancholy about The Fish Maiden, where a man receives a fish that is actually a fish maiden, and asks her to become his wife, but she refuses, instead giving him a pub to run, one of his dreams. But he still longs for company of a wife. Don't expect a completeness that one is accustomed to in modern Western stories- these are truly Fairy Tales, to tell a truth, a little, based in Truth, a little, based in legend, a lot. These are like any other fairy tale you've heard, but..they're new. You've never heard them before. And the point of fairy tales are simply the tales themselves- a good story. I've used these stories in my Speech class, when we practice storytelling, and they are excellent fodder to spark imagination and abilities in students. But the best of them all for me is The Wooden Pig. A little girl receives a wooden pig, that at night grows in size, puts her no his back, and takes her to the air. They fly to his homeland, where there are many children laughing on sleighs in the snow, and visit the man who made him, as the pig squeals out "Finland Forever!"
