This splendid compilation of tales offers a perfect introduction to the colorful pageant of Celtic myth. Its wondrous stories range from the oft-told deeds of Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table to the less-familiar adventures of the mighty Finn and his Fenians, Ulster's Champions of the Red Branch, and other heroic figures from the Gaelic pantheon. Tracing the exploits of kings and saints back to their earliest origins, the author reveals the pagan roots beneath medieval Christianity and follows the transformation of these stories into the fairy tales of the Victorian age. Reader-friendly, this volume makes an ideal steppingstone 0n the path toward the magic cauldron of Celtic myth. Unabridged republication of the classic 1910 edition.
