Descripción

272 pages, 152 Illustrations. The age of the myth lives on in Ireland - in folk tales and literature, in place-names and language, in ceremonies and monuments. This work explores Ireland\'s four provinces to discover the places at the root of Irish myth and legend. Focal mythic sites such as St Patrick\'s Purgatory in Ulster, Loster Gur in Munster and Dublin in Leinster, are described in detail. Finally Ireland is surveyed from a fifth province "Mide" where the entire island is seen to be held in a web of pre-historic sites aligned with solar-lunar events. Ireland\'s sacred locations take on contemporary relevance as the book shows that the underlying concerns of myth - conservation and recurrence - are increasingly present concerns.

Sinopsis:

The age of the myth lives on in Ireland - in folk tales and literature, in place-names and language, in ceremonies and monuments. This work explores Ireland's four provinces to discover the places at the root of Irish myth and legend. Focal mythic sites such as St Patrick's Purgatory in Ulster, Loster Gur in Munster and Dublin in Leinster, are described in detail. Finally Ireland is surveyed from a fifth province "Mide" where the entire island is seen to be held in a web of pre-historic sites aligned with solar-lunar events. Ireland's sacred locations take on contemporary relevance as the book shows that the underlying concerns of myth - conservation and recurrence - are increasingly present concerns.

Review:

Michael Dames, distinguished archaeologist and art historian, has reached into each other Ireland's parishes for stories, legends, architecture and art to write a beautiful book. What he writes is not the usual tourist information or a geographical summary. Region by region, historical period by period, a mosaic of Irish life and customs creates a mythic whole. From mysterious runes to the Book of Kells, word pictures and photographic material create a well-defined Ireland. -- Acts and Activities, January 1999
