    Part of the 'Myths and Legends' series published by Gresham in the early 20th century, 'Celtic Myth and Legend' is actually a reissue of a work, 'The Mythology of the British Islands'. It differs from the rest of the Gresham series because it is a bit more scholarly (it actually has an adequate set of footnotes) and a bit more didactic. This splendidly illustrated study by the distinguished Celticist T. W. Rolleston masterfully retells the great Celtic myths and illuminates the world that spawned them. Focusing principally on Irish myths, the book first takes up the history and religion of the Celts, the myths of the Irish invasion and the early Milesian follows is pure enchantment as you enter the timeless world /5(2).

    First off if you are a scholar of Celtic studies this book is not for you. I do have a deep interest in ancient Celtic society and mythology and hence I found this book frustrating.

Then the retold myths have been sanitized and oversimplified in this case. 8 Myths and Legends of the Celtic Race Aristotle knew that they dwelt “beyond Spain,”that they had captured Rome, and that they set great store by warlike power. References other than geographical are occasionally met with even in early writers. File Size: 6MB.

Other Titles: Myths & legends of the Celtic race Celtic myths & legends: Responsibility: by T.W. Rolleston. More. Celtic Myths & Legends - Book Illustration. Book illustrations.

The first set illustrate the story of Deirdre and Naoise (aka Deirdre of the Sorrows) and the second set, The Cattle Raid of Cooley.
