The Great Myths #13: Oisin in the Otherworld (Celtic)

The Great Myths #13: Oisin in the Otherworld Human Voices Wake Us

An episode from 9/10/21: In this sixth episode on Celtic mythology, I read the famous story of the wanderings of Oisin/Oisín in the Irish Otherworld, the Tir na nÓg.

As usual, I make use of from James MacKillop’s Oxford Dictionary of Celtic Mythology. The two versions of the story I read from can be found in James MacKillop’s Myths & Legends of the Celts and Joseph Campbell’s The Hero with a Thousand Faces.For W. B. Yeats’s 1888 narrative poem, The Wanderings of Oisin, check out Wikipedia.
