Formidable women warriors who trained heros to fight and kill to the beautiful companions who led them to higher realms of feminine intuition and spiritual wisdom Caldecott goes beyond a mere recounting of female strength providing l. This was my first foray into reading mythology in a nonfiction sense ie not YA fae and fairy stories since high school I would highly recommend starting with a book like Caldecott's Women in Celtic Myth if you're being introduced to a new mythological world and history Stories and commentary are blended together to provide the backdrop for tales of magic and heroism but also glimpse the story's depths through cultural history and Celtic symbolismThe role of women in Celtic myth is varied and diverse Each extraordinary woman in each of the tales Caldecott presents has a personality desires and destiny all her own Some are fair maidens some are warriors some are tricksters and they all have varying depths of character and personal journeys that I truly appreciatedMy favorite was Emer and the story of her love and the loves of Cuchulain Right from the beginning Emer is a headstrong and formidable woman Her love loyalty and intuition grow and evolve and it's a beautiful if not tragic story like most to the myths Emer is also my favorite exemplification of the woman's intuition that is pervasive in these myths Intuition allows them to see through magical illusion This running theme and the theme of men ignoring their intuition was uniue and entertaining There are a frustrating number of times a woman should have said I told you so in this anthologyAs with most mythological histories I struggled to keep the names of people and places and their relationships to each other straight A reference guide andor map would have been helpful and could have provided clarity and an easier readOverall this was a wonderful introduction to Celtic mythology and truly showed the appreciation of women and their many roles in this society The commentary by Caldecott provided an additional dimension to the anthology that gave the history and tales further depth I believe the lessons in this book can be applied to further readings on Celtic myths and histories
