When Strange had successfully conjured up his first Fairy, he thought we would have his questions about magic answered. “How would I go about turning myself into a bear? Or a fox? What are the names of the three magical rivers that flow through the Kingdom of Agrace?1” And although Strange asked the fairy these question the fairy would not even answer one of his questions.

Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrel, Susanna Clarke

1Agrace is the name sometimes given to John Uskglass’s third kingdom. This kingdom was thought to lie on the far side of Hell.
