Mar 23, Robert rated it it was ok Shelves: This book has problems that made it nowhere near as worthwhile as I'd hoped: First, it's full of fragments, except where the wholes are very short, anyway. Excerpts just make me want to see the full thing, to get the context and story properly.
Second, there's poetry in here, but it's translated as prose. Whenever someone says, "It's not possible to translate poetry," they really mean, "I'm not up to the task but my ego won't allow me to admit it.
Sep 23, Janez rated it it was amazing Shelves: This book is a must for all those who want to immerse themselves into the world of the Celtic literature, so distant yet, in certain aspects, so close to us. View all 4 comments. I also like the way Celtic style handles description in general, adventure and imagination, so the sections about 'Description' and 'Celtic Magic' were enjoyable too.
Some of them are probably written by women tagged under 'anonymous' , especially the remarkable poem 'Trust No Man' from the 15thth Century, critisizing those men who use and lie to women "A false love is the love of men - woe to the woman who does their will! Though their fine talk is sweet, their hearts are hidden deep within. Not me alone have they deceived, many a one has been tricked before by the inconstant love of men; och, woe to her who has gone my way!
I found many of these, like I said before, very illustrative to read because the mindset is exactly the same as the one found among modern day MRAs and entitled brats. Still full of the usual 'sin' nonsense, though, and this selection was more about praising God and less about religious people having adventures or describing nature, so meh. Apr 16, Jenny rated it liked it Shelves: An interesting collection but I wish they hadn't cut so much out. There are frequently entries to things like the Mabinogion, which I can get in a full text edition. I would have preferred more obscure texts that weren't available in other English editions.
Jan 29, Raelene rated it it was amazing Shelves: Though these words date from the 8th century and beyond, the poetry is fresh, lyrical and frankly fascinating. Aug 08, Stephanie Ricker rated it liked it Shelves: Some of it is brilliant: There is nothing between him and me tonight but earth and coffin and shroud; I have been further ma I read A Celtic Miscellany recently, which is a collection of Welsh, Irish and Scottish Gaelic, Cornish, Breton, and Manx poetry and prose selected and translated by Kenneth Hurlstone Jackson.
There is nothing between him and me tonight but earth and coffin and shroud; I have been further many a time, but never with a heavier heart. Some of it is wryly entertaining: Granted, some of it is dull too, and I was disappointed that so many of the selections were fairly modern sixteenth through eighteenth centuries when I was hoping for more of the older, harder-to-find Celtic poetry of the first thousand years AD.
Some of the excerpts seemed to leave off in odd spots.

Overall, though, I enjoyed the somewhat random assembly of stories and poetry. Apr 05, Chris rated it liked it Shelves: I always want to like Celtic writing more than I do, but then that tends to be true for most medieval lit, the sagas being the only true exception. Like much of Penguin's medieval publications, the translation is old but serviceable. If you can get something better, do, but Penguin is there for all of us that don't have ready access to more accademic tomes. May 10, Chas Bayfield rated it liked it. I bought this to read something originally written in Cornish and was disappointed at the poor representation of that language.
A Celtic Miscellany: Translations from the Celtic Literatures by Kenneth Hurlstone Jackson
Two extracts against loads from Wales, Scotland and Ireland. I guess it serves the Cornish right for not writing anything more interesting but it still seems harsh. Aug 25, Anthony Murphy rated it it was amazing. Beautiful collection of prose and poetry and wisdom from the Celtic world, with a hefty dose of Irish material. A wonderful addition to my bookshelf. May 18, Ellis Knox added it Shelves: Truly a miscellany, with a mix of poems and stories drawn from all across the Celtic world, from the earliest Middle Ages right into the 18th century.
A very interesting compilation about Celtic literature in its six languages.
