By drawing on both the poetry and the prose of all six Celtic
languages; Welsh, Irish and Scottish Gaelic, Cornish, Breton and Manx. This
book succeeds in reflecting the extraordinary depth and diversity 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 nineteenth century.
Selected, annotated and translated by Kenneth Hurlstone Jackson,
A Celtic Miscellany 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.
