Before Fairy Tales:
Fairy Figures in Early Modern English Culture

Before fairies had wings, wands and tutus, a different kind of figure haunted the world
of early modern England. In a world obsessed with the supernatural, the fairies
occupied a nebulous territory in the early modern imagination veering between evil
spirits and wholesome beings. Bringers of death and desire, prosperity and joy,
opportunity and danger, these enigmatic figures still provide valuable insight into the
early modern English cultural imagination.
This lecture series will seek to understand how the fairy figure operated in the poetry,
drama, and narratives of early modern England through the perspectives of five
distinguished scholars:
