A Celtic Miscellany

by Kenneth Jackson (Editor), selected and translated by Kenneth Hurlstone Jackson - £9.99  Penguin Books Ltd (2015)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780141398853 | ISBN 10: 014139885x

Including works from Welsh, Irish and Scottish Gaelic, Cornish, Breton and Manx, this Celtic Miscellany offers a rich blend of poetry and prose from the eighth to the nineteenth century, and provides a unique insight into the minds and literature of the Celtic people. It is a literature dominated by a deep sense of wonder, wild inventiveness and a profound sense of the uncanny, in which the natural world and the power of the individual spirit are celebrated with astonishing imaginative force.
 
Skifully arranged by theme, from the hero-tales of C+ Chulainn, Bardic poetry and elegies, to the sensitive and intimate writings of early Celtic Christianity, this anthology provides a fascinating insight into a deeply creative literary tradition.
