Mr. Norrell Instructs Strange on Fairies

Mr. Norrell was narrating what one author, named Chasting, had said about fairies. “Fairies do not make a strong distinction between the animate and the inanimate. Fairies believe that stones, doors, trees, fire, clouds and so forth all have souls and desires, and are either masculine or feminine.”

Mr. Norrel & Jonathan Strange, Suzanne Clerke
