Product description

Review

"...takes hold of their history in a human compass and with real power... --Gwyn Alf Williams

Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.

However tenuous traditions may appear to be, they often reveal more tenacity than political institutions which seem to be strong enough to last for ever. When the Roman Empire was at the height of its power the Celts of Gaul were taking delight in the arts of public speaking and poetry. Nora Chadwick tells us:
'Gaulish oratory was the most highly prized in the empire...Love of poetry is perhaps the characteristic of the ancient Gauls which impressed itself most deeply on the Romans; and of course native Gaulish poetry was purely oral.'
