Manylion

Rhiannon, Blodeuwedd, Branwen and Olwen - thus begins a litany of names which conjures up the enchanting (and often enchanted) women from the Mabinogi, the ancient legends that are still an inspiration in Celtic countries. Other women from old Welsh folklore are also featured: Melangell, who protected wild creatures; Dwynwen, patron saint of lovers; manipulative Cerdiwen who could take any shape she chose. Jenny Sullivan has found the voice of each of these women, and tells every woman's tale with the grace and wit of a true storyteller. This collection of ten stories will delight contemporary readers, just as they entertained audiences who heard them told hundreds of years ago. Celtic Heroines also contains arresting, stylish black-and-white illustrations by Llinos Mair.
