Irish Imbas: Celtic Mythology Collection 2016
Over the past centuries, many of the most important Celtic cultural narratives and tales have been relegated to the status of children’s stories or cartoonish caricature, misunderstood and misinterpreted for as long as most of us can remember.
This collection by a new wave of contemporary authors hauls Celtic stories out of the dusty shadows and with succinct mythological analysis, places them back into the light where they belong. Love, mystery and drama, these fascinating tales mark a new movement of more authentic and original Celtic-based writing and a better understanding of Celtic cultures.
Subjects covered include the ‘Fairies’, the ‘Salmon of Knowledge’, the ‘Children of Lir’ and the ‘Selkie’.
Na Ceiltigh, abú!
