The growth of literature by H. Munro Chadwick( Book )

82 editions published between 1932 and 2010 in English and Japanese and held by 898 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published between 1932 and 1940, this is a three-volume study of the historical development of literature. It explores the oral and written literatures of regions from Iceland and the British Isles, to Russia, the Balkans, Africa, India and the Pacific, placing them in their historical context and examining similarities between them. The authors discuss both ancient and recent texts, illustrating the connections within each group and considering the question of whether all literary growth is influenced by common factors. Praised on publication as '... a work that is not, probably could not be, superseded' (International Journal of Comparative Sociology), the book remains a benchmark for those studying comparative literature or the history of literary criticism. Volume 1 analyses a range of medieval British and Icelandic poetry and sagas, drawing analogies with the literature of early Greece and focusing particularly on the concept of heroic literature

The druids by Nora K Chadwick( Book )

26 editions published between 1966 and 2000 in English and held by 529 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Druidism was the religion of the Celts and the Druids themselves were all-powerful, taking precedence over the Celtic kings: Over and above the evidence of classical texts and of archaeology, the richest source of information about the Druids is the vernacular material from Ireland and Wales. It is the author's unparalleled familiarity with the Gaelic texts, and her ability to see Druidism through Celtic eyes, that marks out this study from earlier books and strips away modern myths about the Druids."--Jacket
