"A range of the earliest accounts is presented here in fresh translations; it includes some rare Irish material. The texts are arranged in small units and synoptically, in order to permit readers to compare texts and to see the differences and similarities between them." "J. K. Elliott has selected and arranged the texts, and he provides an introductory chapter on the genre. He also includes a full bibliography to benefit readers who may wish to pursue this comparative study more deeply."--BOOK JACKET." ;
