Description

Edited and with annotations by Laura Wilson.

Written in 1899 The Immortal Hour is a moody, dreamy meditation on life, death, love and immortality. Based loosely on the Irish myth “The Wooing of Etain,” the story follows the love of a mortal king, Eochaidh for an immortal fairy woman Etain who at the end of a year with him is reclaimed by her immortal lover, Midir. Woven though out is the enigmatic and dark fairy fool, Dalua, who stands on the threshold between the worlds.

The author of The Immortal Hour, Fiona Macleod, was actually the author William Sharp who produced work under both names. As the feminine Fiona Macleod he was able to explore areas of his interest that did not find expression in his other writings. He closely guarded the secret of his pseudonym; indeed, he often said that discovery would be fatal to Macleod’s work.

This critical edition of The Immortal Hour contains an introductory essay with a biography of the author, analysis of the play and the history of its success as an opera. The text of the play itself is fully annotated with the references to Celtic mythology and a comparison to an earlier publication of it.

Laura Wilson is a long-time student of mythology, Celtic Neo-Paganism, mythic theater and literature. Having completed an MA in dramatic arts at UC Santa Barbara, she is currently working on a PhD in Transformational Studies from The California Institute of Integral Studies in San Francisco.
