A selection of epic myths from Celtic Ireland which recount the adventures of legendary heroes such as Cuchulainn, and Finn, Conchobar, the King of Ulster; the Courtship of Etaine and the heroine Diedre; the story of Diarmaid and Grainne; and the Seige of Druim Damgaire. Jean Markale also unpacks the history behind these tales, commenting on the Celtic spirituality that runs through them and providing commentaries on their philosophical merits. A worthy addition to the bookshelf of anyone who is interested in Irish myth and the Celtic renaissance.
