Overview

A lavish feast for the eye and spirit, this magnificently illustrated volume features classic works from Ireland, Scotland, Cornwall, and Wales, winding the finest poetry, fables, fairy tales, folklore, and lyrics into a magical and mesmerizing Celtic weave. Each section resonates with the mystical ideas of the Celts and the traditions of the Druids--the priesthood that formed the core of Celtic beliefs.

Structured according to the Celtic lunar calendar, The Celtic Quest is divided into three sections: Song, Sword, and Star. Song reveals the Celts' deep reverance for nature, celebrating the rebirth of the land as well as the heart in great works by ancient and contemporary bards. Sword reflects the passage of time with tales of courage and transformation that trace the Celtic heroes' journey toward maturity. Star focuses on the Druidic beliefs in reincarnation, shape-shifting, and shamanic practices.

From the prophetic poetry of Yeats to contemporary voices like Dylan Thomas and Van Morrison, this gorgeous book will ass mystery and magic to your library and your life. Writers include: William Blake, James Joyce, Katharine Tynan, Robert Burns, and George MacDonald. Artists include: John McKirdy Duncan, Augustus John, Charles Rennie and Margaret Macdonald Mackintosh, Harry Clarke, Sir Henry Raeburn, James Jebusa Shannon, Peter Davidson, Tim Goulding, Glyn Morgan, and Gewn O'Dowd.

Richly illustrated, this anthology reflects the beauty, diversity, and craftsmanship of Celtic art--including paintings, drawings, metalwork, and photographs. The unique pairings of art and literature will inspire as they celebrate the magic, power, and poetry of the Celtic spirit.
