Ah, OK.  Gotcha.  Proceeding to not use Froud as a source

I read your recommendation for Briggs on another thread, and I've been waiting to get the money for one of her books (read: I'll probably get the book sometime in the next couple years, if I get my act together).
Would you recommend reading Victorian fairy stories now, or should I get a better grounding in fairies as a whole, in order to better understand the changes they made?

I'd read the Briggs Encyclopedia first.  There are cheap used copies, and most libraries (especially university libraries) have it.  Then I'd read the Victorian texts at the same time as I'm reading the Silver.  That's how I'd structure things if I were teaching a university class on the subject.

If you want to read the Victorian studies first -- and I don't blame you, as lots of them are available for free on Sacred Texts -- bear in mind that Victorian attitudes about gender, class, race, and colonialism are ALL OVER them.  So, absorb the actual collected data, but take all the theorizing and contextualizing with many, many grains of salt.
