Notes

First edition, first impression. Lord Dunsany was "unquestionably one of the most important writers of heroic fantasy of the century; a writer of great originality and charm" (Bleiler). The Blessing of Pan, "one of a great number of modern fantasies that champion paganism against Christianity" is "light and ironic in tone" and describes the gradual and seemingly inevitable fall of a village priest and his parishioners to the worship of the great god Pan (Magill, p. 129; Bleiler).
