Some people go crazy over gnomes. They are mighty cute and can make you feel as you have a little buddy when you look at them. It has been said that gnomes have been described as a more airy or luminous fairy. Nathaniel Hawthorne in Twice-Told Tales (1837) contrasts the two in “Small enough to be king of the fairies, and ugly enough to be king of the gnomes”. They are also compared to elves as in William Cullen Bryant‘s Little People of the Snow (1877), which has “let us have a tale of elves that ride by night, with jingling reins, or gnomes of the mine” (cited after OED).
