Celtic Fairy Tales – A Victorian Children’s Classic

Celtic folklore overflows with vivid stories that fire the imagination. This book contains 26 stories from around Wales and Ireland and was compiled by Joseph Jacobs in the 1890’s. While the stories were published in the 19th. C. they probably date back to the middle ages or even further back in time. While some of the themes found in Celtic folklore are similar to those of contemporary fairy tales, other stories in this collection are infused with a flavour that is uniquely Celtic. In Jacobs’ own words, “The Celts went forth to battle, but they always fell. Yet the captive Celt has enslaved his captor in the realm of imagination.” Even though the content of this book is centuries old, after reading, it will only be the dullest imagination that will not be ignited and set aflame.
