HASH(0xa170f960) out of 5 stars Excellent for studying earliest Celtic society Oct. 8 2013
By Nathan Howard - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
An outstanding, thorough exploration of the stories that defined early Celtic civilization. I used the text as background for a study of early Irish history (pre-medieval) and it proved exceptional. It discusses the Hill of Tara, the Book of Invasions, the Tain, and many other crucial narratives that give an insightful view about how the Celts conceived of their society and their world. It is especially helpful for conveying the tribal culture and the power of orality through figures like the brehons. Not just for the pre-modern Irish reader. Readers of Yeats, Lady Gregory, Synge, Joyce, and other modern Irish writers can appreciate the Celtic Literary Twilight and understand these texts better with knowledge of the venerable past that MacKillop addresses.

HASH(0xa170e5f4) out of 5 stars A must have Sept. 4 2015

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A phenomenal introduction to an under appreciated subject. The author approaches the subject with clarity and ease that makes this a staple quick reference for those who love Celtic mythology and pre-Christian cultures.
