Master Nathaniel Chanticleer, Mayor of Lud, was a man much given to introspection, doubting reality, and dreaming. None of which he revealed naturally. For the town of Lud was a prosperous, bustling little country port, situated at the confluence of two rivers, The Dapple and The Dawl, the former having its source in the land of Faerie, beyond the Elfin Marches and the Debatable Hills to the West.

Hope-in-the-Mist is the first book-length study of British author Hope Mirrlees (1887-1978), whom Virginia Woolf described as "her own heroine -- capricious, exacting, exquisite, very learned, and beautifully dressed." Raised in Scotland and Zululand, Mirrlees studied with the great classical scholar Jane Harrison and later lived with her in Paris and London. Mirrlees wrote one major poem, Paris (1920), the missing link between French avant-garde poetry and her friend T. S. Eliot's The Waste Land (1922); her novel Lud-in-the-Mist is an acknowledged classic of fantastical literature.

These days, we are ever more often confronted by overwhelming events. Searching for a way to understand them, we turn to mythic archetypes still present in our culture. The authors of these essays pose questions about the reliability of the archetypes found in tradition, history, and scattered mythologemes. The essays in this collection deal with the presence of mythic time in modern speculative fiction, such as fantasy and alternate histories, and discuss major mythologemes and their functions in popular literature and extra-literary reality. The authors show how mythopoeic fiction becomes a (genetically) modified mythic mirror in which we hope to see answers to vexing questions, or just a reality superior to the ordinary one. In the Mirror of the Past: Of Fantasy and History is a collection of seven essays by American and Polish authors, including Brian Attebery, Terri Doughty, and Marek Oziewicz, with Mircea Eliade’s concept of “return from history to History” as their underlying theme.
