Poland-born France-residing mainstream author, with Romantic subplots Elizabeth Gaskell (29 Sep 1810-12 Nov 1865) English novelist (nee Elizabeth Stevenson) friend of Charlotte Bronte, and fantasy/weird story author "Cousin Phyllis" (London, 1865? and 1867) Jane [Denvil] Gaskell (7 July 1941-) psuedonym for British author Jane Gaskell Lynch, great-great-great-grandniece of Elizabeth Gaskell, novels include * Atlan [London: Hodder & Stoughton, 1965; Paperback Library, 1968; St.Martins 1978] * The City [London: Hodder & Stoughton; Paperback Library, 1968; St.Martins 1978] * The King's Daughter [London: Hutchinson, 1958] * The Serpent [London: Hodder & Stoughton, 1963] * The Serpent & the Dragon [St.Martins, 1977] * A Sweet Sweet Summer [St.Martins, 1973] Gaslight Romance: term of John Clute et al. for Fantasy or science fiction set in the high Victorian or Edwardian era, which includes but is not limited to Steampunk and Urban Fantasy. (according to "The Encyclopedia of Fantasy", John Clute & John Grant, St.Martin's, 1997, pp.390-391) Gawain: a major Knight of the Round Table, central to the argument that King Arthur was actually from Scotland. Gawain is accepted to be the son of King Lot of Lothian and Orkney, which puts his literary origin squarely in the history of Scotland, using his Celtic name (Gwalchmai). He plays a significant role in the Arthur story as told by Geoffrey of Monmouth [Historia Regum Brittanniae, 1136]. He is described even more glowingly in the anonymous major poem "Sir Gawain and the Green Knight" [circa 1350], and figures centrally in the equally anonymous and lesser poem "The Wedding of Sir Gawen and Dame Ragnell" [circa 1440]. A modern spin is given in "The Green Knight" [1975] by Vera Chapman. He is, far less plausibly, shown as of Roman descent in "Merlin's Ring" [1939, 1974] and "Merlin's Godson" [1976] by H. Warner Munn. He is the protagonist of the "Gwalchmai" series of novels by Gillian Bradshaw. That King Arthur was actually from Scotland is supported by massive evidence, including the hill/mountain in Edinburgh having for over a millennium been known as "Arthur's Seat," and a series of credible geographic identifications of locations in the Arthurian legends with places well north of today's Scotland/England border. The irony is that, while the historic King Arthur is a subject of considerable scholarly debate, the one thing agreed upon by most academics is that he was NOT English, but either of Scotland or Wales or other origin, and fought the English -- yet in the global popular imagination, he is the quintessential English hero. This is a distortion of The Matter of Britain.

It took the Brothers Grimm 13 years to collect their imperishable "Kinder- un Hausmarchen" (Children and Household Tales). They went from village to village, from town to town, in the districts of Hesse and Hanau which they knew best, and transcribed the folk and fairy tales directly from the lips of the common people. These tales, transmuted by the Grimms' poetic feeling and love of children, included such everlasting favorites as "Hansel and Gretel", "Cinderella", "Little Red Ridinghood", "Snow White", and "Rumpelstiltskin." The principle on which the Grimms worked in collecting their stories was truth and exactness. They added nothing of their own, embellished no incident, but faithfully presented the material as they received it. However, the mode of presentation, the poetic feeling, the details were conspicuously the two collaborators' contribution. The "Fairy Tales" of the Brothers Grimm, like those of Hans Christian Andersen, will remain everlasting literary masterpieces.
