So wrote William Butler Yeats, in praise of Lady Gregory's Cuchulain of Muirthemne, the second book in this volume. But it applies equally well to his own Folk and Fairy Tales of the Irish Peasantry, the opening work. Here are two milestones of classic myth and folklore by the giants of the Irish Renaissance: Yeats's original groundbreaking anthology of tales of the magic creatures of Ireland, and Lady Gregory's beautiful and poetic retelling of the great epic myth of Ireland's national hero, Cuchulain.

I think this book is the best that has come out of Ireland in my time.

I BROUGHT THIS AS A GIFT FOR MY GRANDSON WHO IS A STUDENT IN A FAR AWAY COLLEGE AND IS FASCINATED BY IRISH MYTHOLOGY, WHICH HE FIRST ENCOUNTERED ON A TRIP TO IRELAND WHEN HE WAS ELEVEN. THE ONE WORD DESCRIPTORS CAN HARDLY APPLY TO A BOOK ON MYTHOLOGY, BUT I TRIED ANY WAY.
HE GOT THE BOOK (IT WAS PREOWNED) IN GOOD CONDITION AND IS ENJOYING IT.
I RECOMMEND THE BOOK TO ANYONE WHO HAS THIS INTEREST.

Bought this book as a gift, and the recipient is spending a long, cold winter indoors, reading this book and staying cozy and warm. It was in excellent condition when I got it and I was pleased to include it in a Christmas package. Very good transaction with a reliable seller.
Geny
Book condition is exactly as described-I’m very happy with it. Wonderful stories so far-very engaging! Seller also included a much appreciated metal Celtic themed bookmark-thank you!

This book is wonderful. In fact it's so wonderful my son borrowed it the day I got it and I haven't seen it since. I can't wait until he moves and I can go to his room and get it back. (Also, I was surprised it was a hard cover...I was expecting paperback.)
