The Sword of Welleran and Other Stories by Lord Dunsany

Every Dunsany collection seems to have at least 2 or 3 stories in it that are so incredible I want to give the whole book 5 stars. His writing is beautiful but typically very little happens. The title story, “The Sword of Welleran”, is the first tale I read by Dunsany, and it still is perhaps my most favorite fantasy short story.

To and fro and up and down they would walk through the marble streets, gazing at memorials of the things achieved by their country’s swords in the ha.

Tolkien was a curse for fantasy literature.

Last but certainly not least, ‘The Fortress Unvanquishable, Save For Sacnoth’ is fantasy fiction at its very best, in which a lowly hero takes on an evil magician whose ‘dreams came flitting through the forest, and led men’s souls into the plains of Hell. Kith of the Elf Folk was a pleasant tale of nature and peace over society and struggling to live up to its expectations.


More than eighty books of his work were published, and his oeuvre includes hundreds of short stories, as well as successful plays, novels and essays. I will be giving a short review for each of the stories after I read them and then decide on a final rating as a whole!

lecturas errantes: The Sword of Welleran, de Lord Dunsany

Books by Lord Dunsany. It is hard to describe the flow of the narrative and control of the language with a few isolated examples, but here is an excerpt that demonstrates the mystery and turns of phrase present in his writing: Morris is one of Britain’s most honored travel writers, and “Last Letters From Hav” is her brilliant book about Hav, an imaginary city-state that she created so convincingly that holiday makers clamored for flights and tours to the place.

To and fro and up and down they would walk through the marble streets, gazing at memorials of the things achieved by their country’s swords in dr hands of those wellerna long ago had loved Merimna well.

This is a stunning collection of some of his best stories, dreams and visions, seductively told in language as high as the mountains and as simple as the seas.

There is poetry in the prose and strong visual elements. God is not pleased with her in the slightest and sentences her soul to hell, but the angels pity her for she is so beautiful and not entirely guilty, and refuse to take her directly into hell.

The Sword of Welleran and Other Stories

Weoleran will not disagree with those who say that the story “The Fortress Unvanquishable, Save for Sacnoth” may just be the earliest swords-and-sorcery tale.

In no particular order, my top three stories are: One of Dunsany’s recurring themes, the damage caused by human civilisation to the environment and the need for a human extinction, resurfaces here, but is not explored with great humour or depth as occurs at other points in the collection.


Best enjoyed by pairing the text with the just-as-fantastic illustration of Sidney Sime, one of the greatest illustrators. Jan 16, Kristyn rated it really liked it Shelves: Where Tolkein specialised in the depth of his world, Lord Dunsany wdlleran a travelogue of the imagination.

A strangely archaic way to end such a contemporary-feeling collection with muses personified, a device associated with the s. A collection of really excellent fantasy stories from Lord Dunsany This collection contains some really excellent short fantasy stories from the Appendix N author, Lord Dunsany.

In this story we see an example of Dunsany’s reverence of nature and weariness of industrial society that forms the base of many of his tales, and perhaps his purpose for writing his flights of fancy. Perhaps my favorite of these is “The Doom of La Traviata” for its mystical imagery of divine judgment of a sinful young girl before God. This review was first posted on book coasters There is some really excellent stuff in this collection; I enjoyed it immensely.

This charted the life of a young Wild Thing, an ethereal soulless creature of the English marshes. Leothric must stay away for three days and three night consecutively poking the beast in the eye to aelleran it from devouring men. The plots are thin, but as an exercise in style, these are wonderful.
