Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Ranging easily between the tragic and the absurd, between the ritual murder of the water horse or the assassinations at Gibralter and the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, Ni Dhomhnaill reminds us that the power of myth lies in local and personal resurrections, such as the imaginary opening of her own great-grandmother's tomb, but also, more sinisterly, as modern-day reenactments of Queen Medbh's bloody cattle raids in sectarian reprisals. Poems in Irish with translations by Medbh McGuckian and Eilean Ni Chuilleanain.
