Crossing easily the borders between the mythic and the everyday, writing familiarly of the gods of classical times or ancient Ireland and the household gods of our own age, Nuala Ní 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. In Irish and English; translated by Medbh McGuckian and Eiléan Ní Chuilleanáin.
