After the fall of troy, Ulysses and his men seek to return to their na- tive land. Among their many adventures, they are captured by an an- thropoghagous Cyclops, Polyphemus. Later, when they... More > meet the Judge of Right, Ulysses buys from him Three Wise Counsels that will help them get home. The tale is based on part of Homer’s Odyssey, as retold by a mediæval Irish seanchaidhe, who gave it a distinctly Celtic twist. Readers from Cornwall will easily recognise the story theme of the Three Wise Counsels (ATU type 910B), as it’s the same one used in the well-known Cornish tale ‘Jooan Chei an Horr’. In this edition we present the original Middle Irish text (ca.1300 AD), a new Cornish translation, and Kuno Meyer’s English translation (plus the notes and glossary) from his 1886 work, as well as several academic studies of the text.< Less
