Lord Dunsany (1878–1957)

Dunsany, Lord (Edward John Moreton Drax). An Irish peer and a writer of extraordinary imagination, born in 1878. His stories and plays take place in a dream-like otherworld of his own invention, yet so consistently imagined that it gains the reader’s acceptance. His prose volumes are: ‘The Gods of Pegana’ (1905); ‘Time and the Gods’ (1906); ‘The Sword of Welleran’ (1908); ‘A Dreamer’s Tales’ (1910); ‘The Book of Wonder’ (1912). His published plays, all of which have been seen on the stage are: ‘The Glittering Gate’ (1909); ‘King Argimenes’ (1911); ‘The Gods of the Mountain’ (1911); ‘The Golden Doom’ (1912); ‘The Lost Silk Hat’ (1913).
