A Collection of Ballads
Andrew Lang is known for being a poet, novelist, literary critic, and student of anthropology. He is most famous for his folk stories and fairy tales. "Poetry begins, as Aristotle says, in improvisation.
Every man is his own poet, and, in moments of strong motion, expresses himself in song. " Lang goes on to say that poetry was once looked at only in a local sense but now poetry from all over the world is compared and studied. Ballard may evolve into fairy tales and from there into a more advanced literary work. The ballads in this collection were chosen for their romantic charm and for the Border raids they record. A few of the ballads in this work include. Sir Patrick Spens -- Battle Of Otterbourne -- Tam Lin -- Thomas The Rhymer -- "Sir Hugh; Or The Jew's Daughter" -- Son Davie! Son Davie! -- The Wife Of Usher's Well -- The Twa Corbies -- The Bonnie Earl Moray -- Clerk Saunders - and Waly, Waly.
