    Published in 1929, and chosen as one of six Newbery Honor titles in 1930, The Tangle Coated Horse and Other Tales is the second collection of Irish mythology from Ella Young to be so distinguished, following upon 1927 s The Wondersmith and His Son A Tale from the Golden Childhood of the World That earlier work was concerned with the adventures of Goibniu, the Great Smith of Ireland, and derived from the Mythological Cycle of the Irish folk tradition na Sc alta Miotaseola ochta , whereas t Published in 1929, and chosen as one of six Newbery Honor titles in 1930, The Tangle Coated Horse and Other Tales is the second collection of Irish mythology from Ella Young to be so distinguished, following upon 1927 s The Wondersmith and His Son A Tale from the Golden Childhood of the World That earlier work was concerned with the adventures of Goibniu, the Great Smith of Ireland, and derived from the Mythological Cycle of the Irish folk tradition na Sc alta Miotaseola ochta , whereas this is a children s version of the Fenian Cycle An Fianna ocht , in which is told the deeds of the hero Fionn mac Cumhaill and his band of warriors, the Fianna.Opening when Fionn still known by his childhood name of Demna is yet a boy, orphaned by the slaying of his father Uail at the hands of Goll, son of Morna, and being raised in hiding by the Druidress Bovemall and the woman warrior Liath, it follows its hero through many adventures, as he regains the leadership of the Fianna, once held by his father, and wins back the lost prestige of the Clan Bassna The famous episode involving Finnegas the Poet and the Salmon of Knowledge Fionn s battle with Allyn, son of Midna, which ranged from the gates of Tara to the slopes of Slieve Cullion his meeting and all too brief time with the beautiful Saba, mother of Usheen and his travels, together with his companions in the Fianna, to the Land Under Wave told in the the titular selection, The Tangle Coated Horse , are all laid out in this collection So too are many other tales, from Keeltya s time as the king s candlestick, to Diarmid s doomed love affair with Murias, daughter of the King Under the Wave Finally, the collection closes with the story of Usheen s time with Nee av in Teer nan ogue, and his return to Ireland many centuries later, in the days of St Patrick the days when the great cycles of Irish mythology were first recorded.There is great beauty here, in Young s language just as there was in The Wondersmith and His Son and in the stories themselves It is the seductive beauty of music, and of enchantment, of the Shining Folk with whom mortals must share the land, and with whom they must contendMinute by minute the music changed It was patterned, as reedy shallows are patterned by the feet of the wind it gathered itself as a wave gathers, curving to fall and like foam on the running eager crest of a wave like the silvery flash of a salmon in swirling waters the first unearthly melody, the high lilting sweetness, maintained itself Ah, what was it that the son of Midna was playing Why did Fionn take part with him, against himself He was playing the stars out of the sky he was playing the earth to nothingness, and yet Fionn exulted and towered out of his body to listen What was that thin sweet song Sun moon and stars were dust upon the wind small scattered dust and yet the song persisted how could so thin and fine a sweetness consume the heart But it is also the beauty of Ireland herself, atroubling beauty,allflame and starlight and silence quenchless and death givingIt is a beauty to cause bitter longing in the exile be it Diarmid in the Land Under Wave, Usheen in Teer nan ogue, or perhaps, Ella Young in California and a ceaseless desire to return home By turns humorous and haunting, these tales are not all that can be told, of Fionn and the Fianna, but they are a fine introduction to that corpus of story, full of beauty and mystery Although not quite the equal, in my estimation, of the incomparably powerful The Wondersmith and His Son which was a five star standout for me , this is still a lovely collection, one I would highly recommend to any reader interested in retellings of the Fenian cycle of Irish mythology Note Young wrote before there was any standardization, both in terms of Irish spelling, and the Anglicization of names, so readers should be prepared for some unusual forms I tried to stick with those used by Young, in writing of her book that are not much in use today

    Young Me would have found this book boring and probably wouldn t have finished Adult Me enjoyed learning about these old Irish tales, and thinks this would be far better read aloud in a Celtic accent than individually read The names of the people and most of the places have been Anglicized I admit to being one of those who appreciates this when I have to read it on my own, as I am always 100% confounded by Celtic spellings and completely unable to pronounce names I see that aren t trans Young Me would have found this book boring and probably wouldn t have finished Adult Me enjoyed learning about these old Irish tales, and thinks this would be far better read aloud in a Celtic accent than individually read The names of the people and most of the places have been Anglicized I admit to being one of those who appreciates this when I have to read it on my own, as I am always 100% confounded by Celtic spellings and completely unable to pronounce names I see that aren t translated for me.While I don t rate this highly, I wonder at the harshest reviews about this book I don t think some of the reveiwers actually read it The final chapter does seem on the surface to be out of place, but I suspect the author s intent was to bolster the concept that Patrick and fellow monks saved ancient Irish lore by recording the stories Myself, I find it hard to believe that this is the sole reason we have these tales Still, this Christian angle is relegated solely to this final chapter The rest of the stories are not Christianized there is nothing familiar about them, whatsoever, to one raised on Christian lore Yes, the names of people and almost all the places have been Anglicized I confess to being one who has appreciation for this, as Celtic spelling and pronounciation completely confounds me and leaves me absolutely unable to connect to the names if they haven t been translated for me This may not be the most ideal way to tell ancient Irish lore, but it does reflect the audience this Newbery honor book was intended to reach.I greatly enjoyed the way the ancient tales are richly imbued with nature, although like the lore in The Odyssey and The Illiad, this is definitely a man s tale in an absolutely patriarchal vein Piques my interest in female druidic lore to balance it out

    Yet another early 20th c re telling of folk tales, this time the saga of Finn Mac Cool of Ireland One of the biggest challenges of this one is the strange anglicization of Irish names, place names, and mythical beings I have no problem with Fionn Finn but some of the others are very odd Uail Cumhall Cool, Sovan Samhain, Dahna Tuatha de Danaa, Shee Sidhe, etc while others are unchanged Diarmid, Cunnaun It made the slightly familiar fairly difficult to track The language used in the b Yet another early 20th c re telling of folk tales, this time the saga of Finn Mac Cool of Ireland One of the biggest challenges of this one is the strange anglicization of Irish names, place names, and mythical beings I have no problem with Fionn Finn but some of the others are very odd Uail Cumhall Cool, Sovan Samhain, Dahna Tuatha de Danaa, Shee Sidhe, etc while others are unchanged Diarmid, Cunnaun It made the slightly familiar fairly difficult to track The language used in the book is that of oral tradition and addscomplexity to the book I think it would be an interesting read a loud I read this for my 2018 Reading Challenge and my Newbery Challenge Honor book 1930

    This was slightly better than the author s other book of Irish folktales but still a tough book that I had to force myself to finish It was better in that these stories madesense and had endings which her second Newbery did not I guess if you want to learnabout Irish folktales then this book is for you otherwise skip it.

  5. Jen Jen says:

    Interesting tales I had not heard of Fionn, so I am glad to have read this It is not a book that I was able to read without concentration, so I would hesitate to put this in the hands of children, though teenagers interested in mythology or Arthurian legend would enjoy it The final chapter, in which Fionn s son Usheen meets with St Patrick, is strange and unnecessary.

    Leggende Chi non mai stato affascinato da questi mondi fantastici Sin da bambina uno dei miei sogni stato sempre aver la possibilit di visitare questi luoghi, dove si sono narrate le storie e le imprese di tutti gli eroi.L Irlanda, posto magico, un sogno poterla visitare visto che mi hanno sempre paragonato ad un Irlandese, ma non divaghiamo Irlanda meta di turisti per via dei suoi rinomati boschi e delle sue colline verdi, dove si sono consumate battaglie e imprese eroiche dei guerrie Leggende Chi non mai stato affascinato da questi mondi fantastici Sin da bambina uno dei miei sogni stato sempre aver la possibilit di visitare questi luoghi, dove si sono narrate le storie e le imprese di tutti gli eroi.L Irlanda, posto magico, un sogno poterla visitare visto che mi hanno sempre paragonato ad un Irlandese, ma non divaghiamo Irlanda meta di turisti per via dei suoi rinomati boschi e delle sue colline verdi, dove si sono consumate battaglie e imprese eroiche dei guerrieri celti Dove le fate, i guerrieri, i misteri si fondono, grazie a Ella Young ho avuto la possibilit di scoprire le imprese di Fionn assieme ai Fianna.Fionn, inizialmente lo si vede da ragazzo Un ragazzo che non ancora pronto per rivendicare il nome di suo padre e del suo popolo, costretto a vagare per non essere ucciso Ma non solo non pronto fisicamente, ma anche spirualmente poich lui ancora non ha acquisito la saggezza della battaglia Una vicenda particolare lo porter pian piano a essere un uomo ma anche un eroe Eroe che ancora oggi in Irlanda si spera di vederlo in sella al suo cavallo Dopo il buio, ritorna la luce dell alba ed il sole sorge nuovamente Prendi il bacile La cattiva sorte a volte muore, come tutte le cose al mondo Questa raccolta di leggende ricca di credenze anche popolari, come la cattiva sorte, un segnale del cielo che viene interpretato e la cosa fondamentale che il tutto contornato dalla magia Leggendo incontrerete Dei, animali parlanti, streghe benevole e non, ma importante non smettere di credere in queste cose durante la lettura senn tutti gli elementi magici non riusciranno ad appassionarvi e non crederete realmente a ci raccontato.Le vicende di questa raccolta possono essere paragonate a un moto perpetuo, fatto da rinnovo ovvero la gloria e distruzione cio la sfortuna Ad esempio inizialmente la sfortuna si abbatte su Fionn e i suoi compagni, ma nel corso della storia e alle imprese valorose compiute dai vari personaggi, ci si avvicina alla gloria E da l ricomincia il suo ciclo.RECENSIONA COMPLETA SU

    This 1930 Newbery Honor Book introduces children to Irish mythology however, the author presents a Christian Anglicized bowdlerized version of these stories, which makes them feel like wonder tales rather than complete account of the Fenian Cycle.This is another book I m glad to finish The language is archaic and tedious I m not sure why all these early Newbery authors thought that talking down to their child readers would sell books It s rough reading and makes the authors seem pompous This 1930 Newbery Honor Book introduces children to Irish mythology however, the author presents a Christian Anglicized bowdlerized version of these stories, which makes them feel like wonder tales rather than complete account of the Fenian Cycle.This is another book I m glad to finish The language is archaic and tedious I m not sure why all these early Newbery authors thought that talking down to their child readers would sell books It s rough reading and makes the authors seem pompous A kid doesn t learn anything if they put the book aside for easier reading material I had to look up a couple words modern day kids will as well and, once I looked them up, Ms Young s decision to use them frustrated me Example hydromel The author chose to use a Greek word for mead Why didn t she introduce readers to mid, the Irish version of the word There are so many other world views imposed on these tales that they lost the flavor of Ireland The names are really all that remain Irish and I wish the author would have included a pronunciation guide for them Researching how the names are said pulled me out of the story and sent me to the internet, where I found better versions of these tales told in modern voices that will keep children s attention

    I thought that this book was stupid and boring It is about the legends of old Fiannic Ireland, dating backthan 300 years before Christianity came to the island The tales are dumb, and the heroes rely excessively on luck For example, the Tangle Coated horse ran wildly into the ocean carrying 18 people But luckily two youths came up one of which had the talent that he could build a ship in a few seconds and the other that had the talent that they could track anything, even under water I thought that this book was stupid and boring It is about the legends of old Fiannic Ireland, dating backthan 300 years before Christianity came to the island The tales are dumb, and the heroes rely excessively on luck For example, the Tangle Coated horse ran wildly into the ocean carrying 18 people But luckily two youths came up one of which had the talent that he could build a ship in a few seconds and the other that had the talent that they could track anything, even under water How convenient.The tales are actually tales of old Ireland I looked it up However, it seems that the people who came up with them in the first place just kind of made up easy fixes throughout the stories so that they turned out well in the end.Anyway, unless you are sadistic like myself and are trying to read ALL of the Newbery winner and honor books, then this is a good one to avoid If you really do want to read it, I suggest putting a clothes pin over your intellectual nose

    This was written for young people to read of the myths of Ireland I as a senior adult found it just very dry and although there were some tales the characters did not engage me I found I just read the words which did not inspire me The graphics in the book are very nice and the print and the whole book had a nice presentation.
