4.0 out of 5 stars Illuminating and enjoyable March 1, 2014

The translator doesn't try to render the poetry using English poetic conventions, which so often ruins poetry in translation. It's close to prose, but retains a rhythmic and evocative flow. Then selections give insight into ancient Irish thought and customs, as well as Ireland's natural beauty.

I haven't read much of this as it to me is a "pick up" book, but it is very interesting.

3.0 out of 5 stars Longer prose but still ok, not great December 9, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Interesting collection but not the best of what is available to put into a book. I'm sure the ancient Irish had more poetry that was more along the lines of what we are familiar with today. It's not terrible, just more prose than poetry.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not very interesting August 25, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
As a student, I was hoping to find something interesting to read in my free time. I love poetry, and since this was free it seemed great. But it wasn't all that engaging, to be honest. It's not really a collection I'd recommended.
