Celtic Myths, Celtic LegendsBook - 1994
As English composer Stewart states, this is not an academic translation but a collection of tales that are retold with lavish illustrations. Stewart selected the Celtic stories from collections and man-uscripts, interpretations and reworkings of Celtic myths, and traditional ballads and tales. The ten stories come from Wales, Ireland, Brittany, England, and Scotland, suggesting the storytelling range of the Celts. These are hard-edged stories that illustrate the cruelty of an early people, but they are also fanciful and lovely. The author's retelling of these stories is very poetic and beautiful.
