synopsis
‘Extracted from the ancient annals of Ireland and recently translated into French by Nicholas Donneraill of the County of Cork, descendant of the author’
In addition to narrating the educational journeys of Prince Oribeau and his mentor O’Barbo, the book features three separate fairy tales, “Mellusine”, “Sireneh” and “The Fay Ouroucoucou,” connecting the genealogy of the fay to the imaginary history of the story, and the known history of the world.
There is also a detailed account of the metaphysics of Faerie, explaining its location and its contiguity with the perceived world. “Mellusine” and “Sireneh” are transfigurations of well-known legends, while “The Fay Ouroucoucou” is an allegorical apologue.
