A Fire in His Head: Stories of Wandering Aengus
Besorgung - Lieferbarkeit unbestimmt
BeschreibungAengus, the god of love, embarks into the unknown in pursuit of the girl of his dreams. The result is a unique fantastical adventure that takes the theme of W. B. Yeats's poem "The Song of Wandering Aengus" as its motif, and draws into its telling a rich Celtic legacy of myth, legend, and language.
