Irish Texts Society Subsidiary Series Volume 07: A New Introduction to Two Irish Arthurian Romances
SS7. A New Introduction to Two Irish Arthurian Romances As Professor Joseph Nagy of the University of California, Los Angeles, points out, the two stories edited by R. A. S. Macalister for the Society (Main Series 10) are, like the romantic tales to which they belong, ‘the product of confluence and mutual reinforcement between the native and foreign sources available to the author-storyteller’. Professor Nagy’s new introduction is accompanied by an appendix edited from a critical review by T. F. O’Rahilly of the original edition, which does much to remedy the all too evident deficiencies of Macalister’s editorial policies.
