245 pp, 7 3/4" H. "This is the first complete translation of the largest literary text surviving from twelfth-century Ireland, and the most comprehensive early collection of Fenian stories and poetry. Three parallel worlds interact in the 'Tales': the contemporary Christian world of Saint Patrick, with his scribes, clerics, occasional angels, and souls rescued from Hell; the earlier pagan world of the ancient, giant Fenians and an array of Irish kings; and the timeless Otherworld, peopled by ever-young, shape-shifting fairies. The 'Tales' dwell in detail on the inhabitants of the Irish Otherworld and provide an extensive account of their music and magic, their internicine wars and their malice toward, and infatuation with, humankind - themes that still feature in the storytelling of present-day Ireland. This excellent new translation is based on existing manuscript sources and is richly annotated, looking at the 'Acallam's' place in Irish tradition and its wider literary impact." Inside - clean and tight with no previous ownership marks. Exterior - very minor edge wear, very light browning to edges of text block, old price label on rear cover.
