Its genesis lies perhaps in the authors need to reconcile the old primitive world she had glimpsed in her Orkney childhood, with the sophisticated modern world she later entered. This much loved and highly regarded work remains a classic of literature.If you are looking for an insight into the Celtic mindset, or interested in the background of Scottish literature or in Scottish folklore for its own sake .
