Description du livre Paperback. Etat : New. Language: English. Brand new Book. T. W. Rolleston's lengthy compendium of Celtic mythology and ancient lore is a wide-ranging source scarcely paralleled. Painstakingly assembled from years of research into the surviving manuscripts, this exceptional collection of Celtic stories dating to earliest antiquity is as formidable, valid and impressive today as it was on publication in 1911. An ambitious and embracing work, Myths and Legends of the Celtic Race offers up a rare combination of historical insight and lively storytelling. Rolleston explains each and every myth in a simple but salient manner. The stories are summarized, and an explanation of their significance in terms of plot devices, tone, and the wider Celtic culture explained. Rather than be bogged down in dry or overly ponderous narratives, the author breezes through the vast body of work, providing accurate summaries which seldom feel dull or impenetrable. Categorizing the stories by their origin, and explaining the religious origins of many characters, Rolleston weaves an evocative narrative that gives the reader a vibrant and culturally rich portrait of the Celts. From reading any given chapter in its entirety, the reader will emerge enlightened and entertained by the Celtic fiction, and informed by a vivid description of their society. Numerous Celtic cultures receive representation, with tales originating from ancient Wales, Ireland and France all present. Rolleston also makes provision for the Arthurian legends, summarizing their plots and drawing comparisons with the existing Celtic lore. Other significant portions of mythic lore include the Irish invasion myths, the stories of Finn and Fergus, and tales regarding the Milesian peoples. A superb introduction for those interested in the ancient myths of the Celtic societies of yore, Myths and Legends of the Celtic Race is certain to impress with its scintillating summaries and incisive explanations.
