The sword & sorcery genre was born in his early stories, and high fantasy was indelibly transformed by his novels. His profound influence on 20th-century fantastic fiction is visible in authors as dissimilar as Neil Gaiman, H.P.

Lovecraft, and J.R.R. Tolkien. Lord Dunsanys best-known novel is The King of Elflands Daughter (1924), wherein the men of Erl desire to be ruled by a magic lord, and the lords heir, Alveric, ventures into Elfland to win the kings daughter, Lirazel. Their story does not progress as a reader weaned on the diluted milk of formulaic fantasy would expect- and the novels unique journeys and events are matched by Dunsanys rich and lyrical prose and by his contagious intoxication with the magic and marvels of both Elfland and our own world.
