Complete Guide to Celtic Mythology
Appletree, 2000 - 252 halaman
The Celtic world is a rich source of myth and legend and this attractive volume aims to introduce the subject to a wide audience. Following a general history of Celts and druids, Curran presents extracts or summaries of myths that tell the stories of saints, giants and monsters, sea gods, earth and air spirits, sacred sites and heroes. Storytelling in the Celtic tradition is shown to be still alive in the far west of Britain. Each section is accompanied by numerous photographs of Celtic sites and past and present artistic representations of the legends.
