So begins this strange journey into the ancient roots of Western mythology and languages. The manuscript here translated purports to have been written down by an Irish Druid, Fionn maq Vindos, near the beginning of the second century. If true, it the oldest complete piece of European literature that we possess. The book combines both poetry and prose, to produce a compendium of Celtic (or, perhaps, Indo-European) mythology, told to the author, he assures us, by various important members of the Tuatha Dé Danann, or the ancient Celtic gods. In this first English translation of Part One of the manuscript, we are introduced to the Kalishaki, the Children of Light, who live beyond the regions of space and time in Liriline, the Land of Immensity. Full of adventure, romance, terror, pathos, and ribald humor, The Dun Book of Magh Meall is a book to be savored by any student of mythology, religion, anthropology, linguistics, Irish literature--or anyone who enjoys a good story.
