A Celtic Miscellany: Translations from the Celtic Literatures by Kenneth Hurlstone Jackson (1951)
No descriptions found.
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. Arranged by theme, from the hero-tales of Cu Chulainn, Bardic poetry and elegies, to the writings of early Celtic Christianity, this anthology provides a unique insight into 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 extraordinary imaginative force.
