David Byrne on Fairie Culture

David Byrne (artist, musician, ex-lead singer of the Talking Heads) discusses fairie culture on his blog: David Byrne Journal: 10.30.06: The Secret Commonwealth.

Quote: ‘Yeats claimed that the Irish were better writers than the English because of their belief in Fairie culture — that these irrational roots left the imagination less fettered.’ One can imagine William Blake subscribing to this point of view.
