9780330297103: Island of the White Cow: Memories of an Irish Island

In 1972, Deborah Tall, a young American student, came to live on a tiny primitive island off the west coast of Ireland with the visiting professor who had captivated her with tales of an enchanted landscape and the kind of simple, communal life he thought she obviously needed. In her evocative and eloquent account of their five years together, she paints delightful portraits of the islanders, catching all their moods. She describes both strengths and weaknesses of character, and the economic and cultural forces that shaped their attitudes towards life. As a poet, she sees the unexpected, the universal, the inward secrets of the people she came to know so well. - 'I so enjoyed it. It's certainly much more than a travel book. Deborah Tall has managed that impossibly difficult combination of romance, appreciation of beauty (without sentiment) plus a truly critical eye' - RACHEL BILLINGTON - 'Admirable as a calendar of island life, but it is also a well- earned account of the growth of her poet's mind. Without self-absorption, she traces the self's emergence in a place which she recognized from the start as her testing place' - SEAMUS HEANEY
