By drawing on both the poetry and the prose of all six Celtic languages, this "Celtic Miscellany" succeeds in reflecting the extraordinary depth and deiversity of Celtic literature. Skilfully and sensitively arranged by theme (from heroic tales, Bardic poetry and elegies, to the literature of love, nature, magic and religion), the anthology provides a unique insight into the Celtic mind from the earliest times to the 19th century.
