Cuchulainn and the Crow QueeneBook - 2014
A reworking of the key Irish myth exploring the life and loves of the great Irish hero Cuchulainn, making connections between events in the story and places in Ireland which can be visited There was a time in Ireland's history when chivalry and chieftainry ruled the land, when the country was occupied by bands of warriors who spoke only their native tongue and who cherished their heritage and civilization. This was the time of Cuchulainn. All of the warrior bands had their own Seanachie, a person responsible for recounting the deeds of times past, a chronicler of the ages. Cuchulainn was their most famous subject and hundreds of tales of his heroic and terrifying deeds -- such as single-handedly defending Ulster at the age of 17, and his battle frenzy in which he knows neither ally nor enemy -- have survived to this day. The seminal work on Cuchulainn is dense and complex. This is an exhilarating new telling of Cuchulainn for our time, full of valor, passion, and bloodshed.
