Synopsis

The town of Lud was a prosperous community situated at the confluence of two rivers ... on having its source in the Land of Faerie. But being a stuffy, rational, and no-nonsense province--ruled by stuffy, rational and no-nonsense burghers--the people of Lud refused to believe in fairies, elves of the like, and they meted out severe punishments to those who did. But when the Mayor's son confessed to eating fairyfruit and the proper young ladies of Miss Crabapple's school dashed off to the Debatable Hills, even the stuffiest burgher had to acknowledge that a perfect plague of Faerie influence had hit town ... and now steps would have to be taken!

Lud-in-the-Mist (1926) is the third novel by Hope Mirrlees. It continues the author's exploration of the themes of Life and Art, by a method already described in the preface of her first novel, Madeleine: One of Love's Jansenists (1919): "to turn from time to time upon the action the fantastic limelight of eternity, with a sudden effect of unreality and the hint of a world within a world".
