Dark Elves In Fiction

Elves, a word from Germanic mythology, are frequently featured in Fantasy fiction. In modern fiction, particularly because of the influence from J. R. R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings, elves are modeled mostly after his original description: tall, human-like creatures of otherworldly beauty, with Kings and Queens. Along with this development, Dark elves are often modeled as a more sinister counterpart to the High elves, like the Drow or the Trow, which are the fairy-like dark creatures of the Orkney and Shetland islands folklore. The dark elves or black elves are presented in Germanic mythology as dwarves.

Famous quotes containing the words fiction, dark and/or elves:

    The acceptance that all that is solid has melted into the air, that reality and morality are not givens but imperfect human constructs, is the point from which fiction begins.
    Salman Rushdie (b. 1947)

    It’s the old captain’s dark fate
    Who failed to find or force a strait
    In its two-thousand-mile coast;
    And his crew left him where he failed,
    And nothing came of all he sailed.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)

    Ye elves of hills, brooks, standing lakes, and groves,
    And ye that on the sands with printless foot
    Do chase the ebbing Neptune, and do fly him
    When he comes back; you demi-puppets that
    By moonshine do the green sour ringlets make,
    Whereof the ewe not bites; and you whose pastime
    Is to make midnight mushrooms,
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
