KIRKUS REVIEW

From Ireland's inexhaustible legendary heritage, this is a collection of fables, stories, ballads, rhymes which captures the particular poetry, wisdom and humor of her folklore. Here is that timeless world of ""kings and queens, poets, prophets, and saints, wizards, witty women and witless men, fairies, too, and ghosts maybe, and birds and beasts that talk""- often more intelligently than men. The Irish idiom has charm and rhythm and is by no means inaccessible- but this is still for a special market.
