Studies in Early Celtic Nature Poetry

Kenneth Jackson

Studies in Early Celtic Nature Poetry
The Irish and Welsh poems described in this study constitute what has come to be called the "early Celtic nature poetry". The name has been the accepted one for these poems as a whole because they deal to a greater or less extent with external nature, though much is obviously not what we should call real nature poetry at all; and this general description has tended to obscure the fact that the poems are actually very diverse in character. In this book an attempt has been made to discover what really are the different kinds of poetry that have been included under this name, what sort of people composed them, and what was their purpose.
