'This is simply the best concise work on its subject, for a student or general reader, yet published. The author is not only expert in the original texts but has a profound understanding of how they have been used ever since: and so why they matter'
Ronald Hutton, Professor of History, University of Bristol and author of 'The Witch' and 'Pagan Britain'
'Scholarly but accessible'
'An eminently accessible introduction to 'Celtic myth' and the specific quirks of its modern reception that will serve as an excellent introduction'
Cambrian Medieval Celtic Studies
'For those interested in the power, pliability, and potency of Irish and Welsh mythology, this book has much to offer'
