The Book of Celtic Verse

A Treasury of Poetry, Dreams & Visions

John Matthews

This is an inspiring, magical and beautifully packaged collection of Celtic poetry compiled by a leading authority on Celtic tradition. Arranged into five thematic chapters, this anthology reflects the uniquely Celtic love of nature, history, love, myth, magic and spirituality. From the earliest times, the language-loving Celts revered their bards: they established a poetic tradition beginning in the 6th century with the intricate magical verse of Taliesin. It continued in the rich medieval works of Dafydd ap Gwilym and Rhys Goch and stayed strong in the 19th and 20th centuries with Gerald Manley Hopkins, and writers such as R.J. Stewart, Robin Williamson and Catherine Fisher. Matthews has chosen the finest works of a diverse range of poets and translated many of the oldest for this volume. His selection offers a window on to the world of the ancient Celtic peoples, celebrating their culture and their lyrical masterpieces that have survived the ages.

John Matthews is a well-known expert on Celtic lore and the New York Times bestselling author of several successful divinatory systems based on early spiritual beliefs, including The Arthurian Tarot, the Wildwood Tarot and The Byzantine Tarot.
