On the Study of Celtic Literature
Available in PDF, epub, and Kindle ebook. This book has 99 pages in the PDF version, and was originally published in 1867.
To know the Celtic case thoroughly, one must know the Celtic people; and to know them, one must know that by which a people best express themselves; their literature. Few of us have any notion what a mass of Celtic literature is really yet extant and accessible. One constantly finds even very accomplished people, who fancy that the remains of Welsh and Irish literature are as inconsiderable by their volume, as, in their opinion, they are by their intrinsic merit; that these remains consist of a few prose stories, in great part borrowed from the literature of nations more civilised than the Welsh or Irish nation, and of some unintelligible poetry.
