Herself Long Ago
The Poetry of Six Irish Women, a thousand years ago.
What was life like for women in Ireland 1000 years ago? Thanks to the 8th to 10th C. voices of some powerful women –Liadan, Bui, Gormflaith, Creide, Eba, Grainne– we get intriguing insights. In the original Irish, with my facing-page translations.
[3×16vo books in elegant slipcase, with draw-ribbon.Title labels calligraphed in gold; 3 initial caps in colored inks.]
This Stone Street Press collection was –as far as I can discover-the first gathering of Irish women’s poetry –and there haven’t been too many since. One of my most popular titles.
