Motif- Index of

Early Irish Literature

DEDICATED TO of Chicago, to the Irish Fellowship of Chicago, and to the American Irish Historical Society

The University

PREFACE The present work is designed as a supplement to Professor Stith Thompson's Motif-Index of Folk-Literature (6 vols.), Bloomington and Helsinki, 1932ff. It follows Professor Thomp son's method of classification and enumeration, numbers not occurring in Professor Thompson's work being marked with an asterisk. In attempting to fit the motifs of early Irish tradition into Professor Thompson's classification, the compiler, contrary to the preference of some Celticists, has generally identified the aes sidhe and the Tuatha Di Danann as "fairies," and their dwell ings as "fairyland." He has also sought, with questionable suc cess, to differentiate between "gods" and "fairies." Users of this book are warned against accepting indiscriminately as ancient Celtic divinities all of the personages identified as such by modern scholars.

This index is intended primarily for the use of students of folklore and custom and of comparative literature. To this end, the references to early Irish or Hiberno-Latin sources are fre quently supplemented by references to modern scholarly works in which motifs found in Celtic are cited for purposes of com parative study in various fields of literary or cultural history, such as mediaeval romance. A few references to early Welsh added, and, though no effort has been documents have also been made to cover modern Irish folklore, scattered references to that field have also been inserted. To insure as wide usefulness as possible, preference is given to translations contained in books of relatively easy accessibility, and more than one reference is frequently given to different translations of a single motif. For assistance in connection with the present work, thanks are due to many friends whose names, for lack of space, are not recorded here. Especial gratitude is due to Professor F. N. Robinson, under whose inspiration this index was begun as a class exercise nearly half-a-century ago ; to Dr. R. I. Best, whose card-index in the National Library of Ireland was placed at the compiler's disposal; to Mrs. Lucile Grigorieff, Miss Mary Margaret Toole, and Mr. Kenneth Gantz, who collected or checked many of the references; and to Professor Stith Thompson and Professor Archer Taylor, whose constant encouragement is large ly responsible for the publication of this volume.
