‘This long-awaited successor to The Arthur of the Welsh is the first-ever survey of Arthurian material across all the Celtic languages from the Middle Ages to modern times. A significant contribution to the field of Arthurian studies in general, it will prove an indispensable resource for those working with material in the Celtic languages.’
-Professor Sioned Davies, Chair of Welsh, Cardiff University

‘This invaluable collection, the work of an impressive array of experts, communicates the findings of the quarter century and more since the publication of The Arthur of the Welsh. Going into far greater detail than its predecessor in its treatment of the Breton and Cornish evidence, it breaks new ground with its chapters on the Arthur of the Gaels. It will be a rich resource for Celticists and Arthurian specialists alike.’
-Professor John Carey, Department of Early and Medieval Irish, University College Cork

‘This volume is a milestone in Arthurian research … respecting recent intercultural tendencies in Celtic studies. In lucid diction, Welsh, Cornish, Breton and Irish Celtic Arthurian traditions are explained in detail and compared, opening enormous fields of cultural and historical background knowledge.’
-Cora Dietl, Honorary President of the International Arthurian Society

‘Arthur in the Celtic Languages is a book for the twenty-first century: its multilingual and geographical breadth, and the excellence of the scholarship, recommend it as a must-read for the expert and student alike.’
-Raluca Radulescu, Professor of Medieval Literature, Bangor University

'Looking at tales that recount quests and narrate marvels, the essays describe characters and situations as they are reimagined and reinterpreted according to local circumstances, traditions, and preoccupations at different historical periods. Specialists, in particular, will find this examination of a vast and complex body of lore indispensable.'
- R. Cormier, emeritus, Longwood University. CHOICE
