Product description

'An incandescent vision, a wildness of imagination, sensiblity to sound and colour and form ... human passion, love, sorrow and anger.' Thus Myles Dillon describes the enduring qualities of the literature of early Ireland. In Early Irish Literature, he summarizes the historical, mythological and poetic legacy of ancient and medieval Ireland, spanning more than a millennium, selecting the most important tales and poems of early Ireland and rendering them in a vibrant English translation. This book is a valuable introduction to this area for student an general reader alike.
