The Great Myths #19: Farewell to the Celtic Myths & One Last Story

The Great Myths #19: Farewell to the Celtic Myths, & One Last Story Human Voices Wake Us

An episode from 8/22/22: Tonight we leave the Celtic myths with an overview of all the episodes devoted to it, The Great Myths #8-18 (which can be listened to here). Then I read one final story, of Cuchulainn’s fight with Ferdiad, from Thomas Kinsella’s translation of the Táin bo Cúailnge.  As usual, heroism, the supernatural, war, pathos, friendship, and otherworldliness abound.

The various books and translations used for these episodes on the Celtic Myths can be found here.
