There are many tales (mostly in Europe) regardling elves, fairies, pixies, dryads, nymphs, you name it. I was wondering if anyone here has ever done
a lot of research into this? I've dipped into it a little bit, and I'm curious to see what else is out there on it...
Also, in regards to the nastier versions, such as goblins, trolls, kobalds, etc.
Why do you think there are so many references to such creatures? Is it possible that there is really a basis in reality for one or more of them? The
idea of "little people" seems to be all over European folklore.... I'm especially interested in the viewpoints of Europeans, who have grown up
with such tales....Thanks!
