Most of you know that we’ve been reading Bard the Odyssey of the Irish by Morgan Llywelyn. As planned, we discussed the first twelve chapters at our Beltaine meeting. We had scheduled our discussion of chapters thirteen through twenty-four for our Summer Solstice meeting, but an emergency put it on hold. I suggested moving our second discussion to the blog. Now I’m wondering if those participating would like to finish discussing the book here. Let me know what you think. If you haven’t shared your thoughts on the beginning of the book, feel free to add those thoughts to this thread.
Our last discussion of the book includeded:
- the role women play in Celtic societies and their strength
- the role of the bard, warrior, and sacrificer
- the complicated character of Colptha
- brief thoughts on the portrayal of the Tuatha de Danann
