Tales of the Celtic Bards by Claire Hamilton
Book DescriptionThe ancient Bards encoded their knowledge of the natural world of animals and plants and the power to heal, order and judge into teasing riddles that were told or sung, not written down. They believed they had powers of divination, shape changing and the ability to travel to the 'other world'. Inspiration and vision are the foundation of Celtic myth. In this book Claire Hamilton captures the enchanting and often strange beauty of the tales they told. She recreates the experience of the Celtic listeners of long ago by framing the myth with the teller and teller with his or her audience who would have listened spellbound as this higher knowledge was handed down.
