The presentation is loaded with ancient Celtic folklore
which pretty accurately cultivates the poetry, music,
art and stylish writing of the Celts. The author recites
his experience in visiting places like Gorsedd which
are the stalwarts of academe. In this case, it's conferring
the bard degree.

There is an interesting delineation of the Myvyrian
manuscripts which consist of 40 + volumes of poetry
with 2000 englynion or epigrammatic stanzas. The
Annals of the Four Masters is another interesting
literary conversation piece with a solid foundation
in the destruction of churches and castles of old.

Here is a sample of the poetry:
"For acuteness of valor, the Greeks.
For excessive pride, the Romans.
For dulness, the creeping Saxons;
For beauty and amorousness, the Gaedhils."

Overall, this volume is a useful critique on
Celtic literature and its origins and interconnectedness
to British, Welsh and Irish literature. The Celtic vocabulary
is complex to read for newbies to this form of writing.
In addition, the author's characterizations are overly general
for the present day discourse.

It was a difficult book to read. Some of the words he used were not in the Kindle dictionary. The Bing translator doesn't work very well in French and German and doesn't work in Latin at all.
