Publisher's Summary

While they left few written records, the Celts’ profound influence on Western culture can be found throughout art, literature, spirituality, and even ecology, and remains a strong presence in pop culture today. The Wisdom of the Celts offers a fascinating view into the world of the Celts: their origins, their diaspora throughout Europe and Turkey, their vibrant society, and their great respect for wisdom and an oral tradition. Drawing on folklore, legends, transcriptions, ancient Roman texts, and the literature of Ireland, Scotland, France, and Wales, this comprehensive guide brings to life the Celt ideology. Topics include heroes, King Arthur, the Otherworld, death, healing, love, nature, sexuality, freedom, spirituality, shape-shifting, animals, the role of women, family, and beauty.

Worthy

It is well worth it as the performance is told in dramatic repose befitting a Celtic retelling.
