Home / Books / Celtic Revival

The Celtic Revival also referred to as the Celtic Twilight was a variety of movements and trends in the 19th and 20th centuries that saw a renewed interest in aspects of Celtic culture. Artists and writers drew on the traditions of Gaelic literature, Welsh-language literature, and Celtic Art. Irish writers including William Butler Yeats, Lady Gregory, “AE” Russell, Edward Martyn, and Edward Plunkett (Lord Dunsany) stimulated a new appreciation of traditional Irish literature and Irish poetry in the late 19th and early 20th century.
