Nuala Ní Dhomhnaill: Selected Essays (ed. by Oona Frawley)
Since publishing her first collection of poetry, Nuala Ní Dhomhnaill has been hailed as the foremost contemporary Irish-language poet. Edited by Oona Frawley, Selected Essays
gathers, for the first time, the prose works of this exceptional poet. Leading us through the West Kerry landscape of her childhood and on pilgrimages to Glendalough, Kerry and Turkey, Ní Dhomhnaill muses on writing, the Irish language, folklore and myhtology.
Written over two decades, Selected Essays
provides a new perspective on a changing Ireland, a window into the 'psychic realities' of Irish culture. For admirers of her poetry, Irish-language enthusiasts, and those interested in the changing shape of Ireland, this book is unmissable.
