The Táin: From the Irish epic Táin Bó Cúailnge
Reading the introduction to this book I was quite wary of the accuracy, and I still can't know but I believe the translator does a good job. The stories are quite interesting. You can definitely see the influence it has had on Tolkien, and to a lesser extent the elder scrolls series. The book is mostly prose with some smatterings of poetry. Occasionally it breaks down into long lists, usually people and their descriptions and these are quite boring.
