Yeatss fascination with the occult infuses several of the stories, and Mythologies includes a section of essays presenting the poets speculations on the supernatural, as well as his theories about Irish mysticism.Such recent bestsellers as How the Irish Saved Civilization and Angelas Ashes demonstrate the popularity of books about the Irish and Ireland. Mythologies will appeal to this audience -- and to every adult and child who enjoys the magical power of a well-told tale.
