has anyone here read this amazing book? it is Robert Graves magnum opus about the origins of Celtic mythology and the way it was passed down through the bardic tradition. a VERY difficult read, but well worth it. i've tried to get through it a number of times, getting a little further each time. before this life is done, i WILL finish this book!.

Thanks for the info! I'm currently reading "Celtic History" and that too is a tough read (i've been trying to get through it for 3 months now) but I enjoy the parts about the mythology as well.

*runs off to break open piggy bank to buy more books* :D

Namaste all,
definately one of THE books for witchcraft, celtic, pagan studies.

no speels, no fluff stuff, yet a lot of wisdom.

I hope to get the english book soon, we have only the french translation, and thats really heavy to read for a non native speaker.

Yes, that is a great book. It's been a while since I've read that. Probably time for another reading.
