Product Overview

A nation's literary myths may shed more light on the complexities underlying its politics than can a straightforward historical recounting of past events. Nowhere is this more true than in Ireland, where the lethal archetype of Ireland as seductive mother and lover survives as one aspect of the political violence that continues to afflict the country today.
