Andrew Lang (1844 – 1912) was a Scots poet, novelist, literary critic, and contributor to the field of anthropology. He is best known as a collector of folk and fairy tales. The Andrew Lang lectures at the University of St Andrews are named after him. Lang was also a prolific author of works both fiction and non; he wrote his own fairy tales such as Prince Prigio and Prince Ricardo of Pantouflia, and wrote numerous historical texts. ‘The Enchanted Pig’ tells us about a king who had three beloved daughters. He loved them much and wanted to spend all his time with them but he was the king and he was obliged to perform his royal duties. So one day he went to war and told them they could go into any room in the palace except one… and if the did they would be harmed. The promised to be obedient. Would they keep the promise?
