9780140455304: The Táin: Translated from the Old Irish Epic Táin Bó Cúailnge

The Tain Bo Cualinge, centrepiece of the eighth-century Ulster cycle of heroic tales, is Ireland's great epic. It tells the story of a great cattle-raid, the invasion of Ulster by the armies of Medb and Ailill, Queen and King of Connacht, and their allies, seeking to carry off the great Brown Bull of Cualige. The hero of the tale is Cuchulainn, the Hound of Ulster, who resists the invaders single-handed while Ulster's warriors lie sick.

Review:

"Carson's landmark translation, the first in forty years, brings this literary gem to life in a fresh, modern retelling that rivals Thomas Kinsella's classic translation of 1969."- "Booklist "In vivid prose Carson has harnessed . . . the tale's tremendous artistic power."-Irish Voice"

From the Publisher:

This landmark publication is the first new translation of the
central Irish epic, The Tain, since Thomas Kinsella's version in 1969.
Ciaran Carson has brought his linguistic and lyric brilliance to bear on
the cornerstone of Irish mythology.
