A Celtic Miscellany: Translations from the Celtic Literature
Kenneth H. Jackson
1stPublisher: Penguin BooksFormat: Paperback
Welsh, Irish and Scottish Gaelic, Cornish, Breton and Manx. By drawing on both the poetry and the prose of all six Celtic languages, this “Celtic miscellany” succeeds in reflecting the extraordinary depth and diversity of Celtic literature. Skilfully and sensitively arranaged 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. Selected, annotated and translated by Kenneth Hurlstone Jackson, this book crosses the barrier of language with remarkable ease and elegance, managing to convey the astonishing power of imagination under which the Celtic literary tradition flourished for so many years.
