Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0941807231, Hardcover)History books can teach you the nuts and bolts of the Celtic civilization--dates of conquest, trade routes, linguistics, and such things--but Lahr actually revives the spirit of the Celts through their own tradition of teaching with story, poetry, and art. Rather than opening moldering tombs to display the treasures of the dead, Lahr offers us a living treasure. The Celtic Quest in Art and Literature weds Malory's heroic tale of King Arthur with a lucid tempera painting by John McKirdy Duncan, it pairs Robert Graves's "Gift of Sight" with a crisp photograph of a sacred forest grove, and it merges Yeats's "Fergus and the Druid" with a Cornish megalith under a star-strewn sky. Lahr's marriage of ancient and modern, word and image sings out with the voice of an ancient people that have not died but live in the imagination of poets and artists today. --Brian Patterson
