About the Author

About the Author:

"Thomas William Hazen Rolleston (1857 – 1920) was an Irish writer, literary figure and translator, known as a poet but publishing over a wide range of literary and political topics. He lived at various times in Dublin, Germany, London and County Wicklow; settling finally in 1908 in Hampstead, London, where he died.

He was born in Glasshouse, Shinrone, County Offaly, the son of a judge. He was educated at St Columba's College, Rathfarnham and Trinity College, Dublin. After a time in Germany he founded the Dublin University Review in 1885; he published Poems and Ballads of Young Ireland (1888), and a Life of Lessing (1889). In London in the 1890s he was one of the Rhymer's Club; he was to cross paths several times, and sometimes to clash, with W. B. Yeats. He was also involved in Douglas Hyde's Gaelic League.

He also spent time as a journalist, and as a civil servant involved with agriculture. He had eight children, from two marriages." (Quote from wikipedia.org)

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Format: Hardcover
This is a good overview of myth and legend. It is History and Literary Criticism. The actual myths are under detailed discussion here, but the texts of the works are not. It is a solid book and worthwhile to find out which myths and legends you would like to pursue further. This volume is the full work that is greatly reduced and mostly reworded in Rolleston's "The Illustrated Guide to Celtic Mythology." You can call them "companion books."
