Excerpt from The Hoofmarks of the Faun

Two of the six stories in this book were written long before the others; all at considerable intervals. This must explain their apparent inequality in craftsmanship. I tried to correct them, but found that in doing so I was imposing one mood on another and blurring both with contradiction. I left them as they were. Craftsmanship is not everything, and those old moods seem to me almost worth regretting, because they are irretrievable. So I print the six stories together in a volume that has, for myself, the sentimental interest of a diary, and for others, perhaps, the interest of seeing, in a form very far from direct expression, various stages of boyhood and manhood. The Scandinavian dream of twenty, the would-be realism of twenty-one, and the fauns and other imaginations of later youth, represent, as it were, salutes to six of those funerals that go their way whenever one mood or vision of life reluctantly gives place to another. L'humeur est morte: vive l'humeur.

Excerpt from The Hoofmarks of the Faun Country, there is a grey farm with a huge granary built close under the fell, where the meadows give way to rock and bracken on the one side and deep woodland on the other. Many years ago a man from the South came to this farm with his wife and his little son, and settled down there to lead hay and milk cows and keep sheep on the fells like the North Country folk about him. Now, the little boy was not like the children of the other farms in the valley, for his hair was black and theirs was gold, his eyes were black and theirs were blue, and his cheeks were not red with the apple red of the people of the North, but with.
