This volume assesses the achievements and legacy of Whitley Stokes, a colonial jurist and Celtic scholar. The book brings together the diverse strands of his life, from his earliest years in Dublin, through his time in mid-19th-century London and his successful legal career in British India, to his later years as an important scholar of medieval Celtic languages and literatures.

Contents include: Whitley Stokes Senior (1763-1845)

* Stokes and Rudolf Siegfried

* Stokes and the Pre-Raphaelites

* Stokes and Irish Identity in British India

* The Sanskrit Legacy of Stokes

* The Letters of Stokes to Adalbert Kuhn

* Stokes, Bradshaw, and Old Welsh in Cambridge

* Stokes and Early Irish Law

* Stokes, Standish Hayes O'Grady, and Acallam na Senorach

*** "The publication of this beautifully designed volume....should draw attention to Whitley Stokes as a giant of nineteenth century scholarship and as a pivotal figure in the scholarship that prepared the way for the literary and cultural revival of the late nineteenth century. The editors modestly present this volume as 'a starting point'; it's excellence and accessibility surely signal that Stoke's papers will be studied by future scholars from a wide range of disciplines for years to come." -
