The Celtic Sources for the Arthurian legend

£9.99

Product description

The Welsh have been celebrating the exploits of King Arthur in poetry and prose since the early Dark Ages, and there is much to suggest that their fellow Celts, Cornishmen, Bretons and Gaels, were also familiar with his shadowy figure. The debate over Arthur's origins is re-opening; could he have been an Irishman? Indeed, did he exist at all?

Now, for the first time, practically all the early Celtic sources (Welsh, Irish and Latin) for the Arthurian legend are available to scholar and layman alike in a single collection. Each text is accompanied by a facing translation, a discussion of its most important points, and a bibliography for further reading.

Very good condition. Evidence of careful use with just light creasing to spine. Clean internally and externally.
