review A Celtic Miscellany Translations from the Celtic Literature Penguin Classics 103 Skifully arranged by theme from the hero tales of Cú Chulainn Bardic poetry and elegies to the sensitive and intimate writings of early Celtic Christianity this anthology provides a fascinating insight into a deeply creative literary traditio.
