I always want to like Celtic writing than I do but then that tends to be true for most medieval lit the sagas being the only true exception Like much of Penguin s medieval publications the translation is old but serviceable If you can get something better do but Penguin is there for all of us that don t have ready access to accademic tomes Scream If You Want to Go Faster you can get something better do but Penguin is there for all of us that don t have ready access to accademic tomes
