Celtic Myths and Legends



EUR 9.49

A collection of legends from early Christian times, in which the author retells the stories with a directness and simplicity which makes them refreshingly modern. The stories have a literary merit and a style and character of their own; their sophistication not dissimilar to that of the great tales of ancient Greece. Included in this collection are: 'The Children of Lir', 'The Wooing of Etain', 'Diarmuid and Grainne', 'The Combat at the Ford', 'The Children of Tuireann', 'The Sickbed of Cuchulain' and 'Deirdre and the Sons of Usna'.
