  1. Celtic Tales: Fairy Tales and Stories of Enchantment from Ireland, Scotland, Brittany, and Wales

    The traditional stories of Ireland, Scotland, Brittany, and Wales transport us to the fantastical world of Celtic folklore. Translated and transcribed by folklorists in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, the 16 stories in this compilation conjure forgotten realms and rare magical creatures in vivid prose. These timeless tales brim with wit and magic, and each one is brought to life with elegant silhouette art by Kate Forrester in this special illustrated edition."Divided into four categories-'Tricksters, ' 'The Sea, ' 'Quests, ' and 'Romance'-the 16 tales that make up this handsomely designed collection are adapted from sources originally published between 1888 and 1929, now in the public domain. Full-page silhouette-style images from British illustrator Forrester open each tale, framed within intricate borders featuring fish, gravestones, dragons, and other thematic imagery entwined with Celtic knots. Witches, selkies, fairies, and other creatures make appearances in the brisk tales, which tend toward light humor and happy resolutions. It's an absorbing introduction to the lore of Albion, but readers will also enjoy teasing out similarities between these tales and more familiar ones-the Scottish tale of 'The Black Bull of Norroway' carries echoes of 'Beauty and the Beast,' ...

  2. Myths and Legends of the Celtic Race

    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 C...

  3. Celtic Legends: Heroes and Warriors, Myths and Monsters (Histories)

    From around 750BC to 12BC, the Celts were the most powerful people in central and northern Europe. With the expansion of the Roman Empire and the later Christianization of these lands, they were pushed to the fringes of north-western Spain, France and the British Isles. But there the mythology of these peoples held strong. The tales from Celtic myth were noted down and also absorbed into other cultures. From Roman and Christian scribes we know of characters like Morrigan the shape-shifting queen, who could change herself from a crow to a wolf, Cu Chulainn, who, mortally wounded in battle, tied himself with his own intestines to a rock so that he’d die standing up, and the Cauldron of Bran, which could restore life. Other than being fascinating in their own right, Celtic legends are of interest for the influence they had over subsequent mythologies. The story of the Holy Grail first appears in medieval romances but its antecedents can be found in the Celtic tale, the Mabinogion. Illustrated with more than 180 color and black-and-white artworks and photographs and maps, Celtic Legends is an expertly written account of the mythological tales that both fascinate us and influence other writings.

  4. Lake of Destiny: A Scottish Legends Romance (Celtic Legends Collection)

    A magical love story about destiny, family, food, men in kilts, and the sometimes twisted path to love from the award-winning author of Compulsion. "Delightful, charming, and heartwarming!" NYT bestselling author Wendy Higgins    Helping her aunt organize a festival in the Scottish Highlands where Rob Roy MacGregor once lived seems like the perfect escape from Anna Cameron's broken engagement. But to succeed, she'll have to wrangle kilt-wearing villagers, dangerous sheep, and the reclusive laird of the glen who refuses to open his property to the public for the ancient tradition of "Sighting." To locals, the glen has always been known as a "thin" place, one where the veil between worlds peels back on Beltane morning to reflect the face of a person's true love. The tradition should draw tourists by the busload--but that's exactly what Connal MacGregor doesn't want, not when he's desperate to keep himself and his daughter out of the public eye. Struggling to mediate between Connal and the needs of the village, Anna finds herself falling in love--with Connal and his disfigured daughter, with the villagers, and with the magical glen itself. But opening the "Sighting" to strangers risks revealing generations of secrets and exposes deep scars in both Anna and Connal. Confronti...

    Irish Myths & Legends - Full Documentary

    Celtic Legends

    The mythology of pre-Christian Ireland did not entirely survive the conversion to Christianity. However, much of it was preserved in medieval Irish literature, though it was shorn of its religious meanings. #DocuGods This literature represents the most extensive and best preserved of all the branches of Celtic mythology. Although many of the manuscripts have not survived and much more material was probably never committed to writing, there is enough remaining to enable the identification of ...
