Description

'These legends are the action-packed stories - of ancient heroes, huge battles, attempted invasions, prophecies and spells, clashes between the underworld and the real world, abductions, love affairs and feasts - which have fascinated the Irish mind for more than 2,000 years . . . Most of them have an extraordinary, stark narrative sweep, with a marvellous sense of detail . . . Heaney writes directly and fluently . . . with great tact and skill.' Sunday Times

Mythology is my passion, and these stories are perfect for the ancient culture of Ireland. I read a few of the cycles for an Irish Lit class, and the tales of the heroes are easy to read and understand in these translations.
