THE ROLE OF WOMEN IN CELTIC HISTORY & STORIES
ON THE EDGE OF DREAM
Women In Celtic Myth & Legend
Weaving fragments of ancient epic texts and the richness of oral tradition, tonight's stories feature the powerful, wild, and wise women of Celtic mythology. The women of Celtic literature are here celebrated for their ingenuity, spirit, physical courage, and deep instinctual natures.
Retold for the modern reader, in earthy, poetic language, these haunting, deeply moving tales exert a primal pull, awakening ancient memories buried deep within our collective unconscious.
THE ROMANCE OF MIS AND DUBH RUIS
He thought that if he could serenade her with his harp, he might be able to woo her. This, he hoped, would heal her wounded soul and cure her madness. Mis was, indeed, transfixed by the sound of Dubh Ruis's harp. She was also transfixed by his naked body as he played the sweet songs.
BLODEUWEDD - A woman made of flowers
A woman named Arianrhod places a ‘tynged’ on her son, Lleu Llaw Gyffes, that Lleu could never marry a human woman. But Lleu had an uncle named Gwydion, a legendary wizard, who creates for Lleu a wife made of flowers and named her Blodeuwedd. She was created from the flowers of the oak, the flowers of the broom, and the flowers of the meadowsweet. Blodeuwedd and Lleu get married, but trouble is soon on the horizon. Blodeuwedd has fallen in love with Gronw Pebr, a warrior and hunter from Penllyn.
