 Synopsis

Slumming it out of their native Eire for a spell, Morgan Llywelyn (1916: A Novel of the Irish Rebellion) and Michael Scott (Irish Folk and Fairy Tales) have turned their erudite scholarship and lyric prose to the far south: The Etruscans recounts a mythic tale of the Rasne, the "Silver People," a prosperous and sophisticated culture dwelling in what is now Tuscany that was forced out by the rise of Rome (or rather absorbed, as was the custom in those days).

 Synopsis

Morgan Llywelyn combines elements of Celtic mythology and history into her interpretation of the migration of a tribe of Celts to Ireland in her novel Bard, subtitled "The Odyssey of the Irish."

Amergin, one of the six sons of the chieftain Milesios, has never been like his four warrior brothers; like his brother Colptha, he has become a druid. But where Colptha's role is that of sacrificer, Amergin is a bard, his music and his memory serving to pass on the history of his people. He is also responsible for recording the new deeds and accomplishments of his tribe in words and music.
