Women of the Celts is a an interesting history/literary work. The legends and myths of the Celts are used to reveal that the first 'religions' and societies were actually woman centric. It was with the advent of the idea of a 'single' god that societies became patriarchal and debased women. Markale also has a couple chapters providing interesting interpretations on marriage and love.
I'm still reading through it. I've always enjoyed Jean Markale's books for his insight and wisdom into all things Celtic. However, what I've read so far is very good in helping me understand Celtic mythology.
