Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Enthralling accounts of the legendary Cuchulain, the greatest of ancient Ireland's Knights of the Red Branch, tell of his birth and boyhood deeds, exploits in love and war, and premature death, all in the same beautifully simple style Lady Gregory first heard them as a child. Preface by W. B. Yeats.

Book News Annotation:

More of a retelling than a translation, for which Irish writer, folklorist, and playwright Augusta Gregory (1852-1932) compiled a number of related tales into something like a single narrative. Her English is consciously archaic for her time, and attempts to retain some Irish linguistic structures, but the effect is mostly lilting rather than awkward, especially when read in bad stage Irish. She appends pronunciation guides for some of the more difficult names, and identifies some place names. Some of the events and characterizations are air-brushed to conform to Victorian standards of decency. Her friend William Butler Yeats contributes a rather lengthy preface. The original publisher was John Murray, London.
