Okay. I really want to read the translation - either of the translations - of the Tain bo Cuailnge described here, but not for the same reasons the dude who reviewed it likes it. Or at least, not all of them.

First and foremost among them is the fact that -- unlike, say, the Iliad -- the characters in "The Táin" don't stand as archetypes. They're real people...

*tugs on pant leg* Um, 'scuse me, Mister? Are we reading the same Iliad here?
