“An immensely useful and long-needed critical resource which combines an edition of Standish O’Grady’s influential writings on the heroic figure of Cuculain with an excellent scholarly apparatus.”

Margaret Kelleher, chair of Anglo-Irish Literature and Drama, University College Dublin

“This [edition] makes available one of the seminal sources of the Irish Literary Revival. Its value is greatly enhanced by a number of essays which relate O’Grady’s treatment of Cuculain to the scholarly and antiquarian sources on which O’Grady drew.”

Patrick Maume, researcher for the Royal Irish Academy’s Dictionary of Irish Biography

“O’Grady’s work opens discussion into English literature, historiography, and political writing at large, which makes this volume provocative and useful for multiple audiences.”

Nicholas Allen, professor of English, University of Georgia

A concise, abridged version of the story of Cuculain, the central figure in Standish O’Grady’s History of Ireland, along with an introduction, glossary, and critical essays, demonstrating its significance for the continued reimagining of Ireland’s past, present, and future.
