First written down within the 8th century advert, those early Irish tales depict a much older world—part delusion, half legend and half heritage. wealthy with magic and achingly appealing, they communicate of a land of heroic battles, severe love and warrior beliefs, within which the otherworld is explored and males mingle freely with the gods. From the bright adventures of the nice Celtic hero Cu Chulaind, to the lovely "Exile of the Sons of Uisliu"—a story of treachery, honour and romance—these are masterpieces of ardour and power, and shape the root for the Irish literary culture: a mythic legacy that was once a robust impression at the paintings of Yeats, Synge and Joyce.
