Andrew Lang

Andrew Lang, né à Selkirk en Écosse le 31 mars 1844 et mort le 20 juillet 1912, était un homme de lettres écossais, poète, romancier, critique littéraire.

Biographie

Il est surtout connu pour ses travaux sur le folklore, la mythologie et la religion. Il tente d'expliquer la formation de la religion, du surnaturel à partir du milieu naturel.

Éditeur du Harper's Magazine en 1885, il aide Henry Rider Haggard à publier Les Mines du Roi Salomon et fait paraître avec lui The World's Desire, une sorte de suite de l'Odyssée. Pour les enfants il écrit une série de "fairy books" (contes de fées).
