Description
Description: his is the third of four volumes of Campbell's collection of Scottish folklore. This volume is less 'fairy tale' oriented than the previous two volumes, and includes several significant pieces of poetry, including the The Lay of the Diarmaid, The Yellow Muilearteach, The Lay of the Great Fool, and the The Lay of Osgar. These have been transcribed in both English and Gaelic, and the Gaelic text of these lays is included in the etext. The longest tale so far, the Story of Conall Gulban, is found in this volume. Also of interest are the (fairly transparent) pagan mythological themes in many of the pieces in this volume.
