A comprehensive collection which traces love poetry in Irish from the earliest times to the modern day. This is a wonderful insight into the passion and the strength of love. Every aspect of love is discussed in these poems and songs - the joy of young love; the humour and the fun of love; loneliness and heartbreak; desire and unrequited love; and love turned into hatred.
The sensitive power of the poets themselves is to the forefront as they celebrate the complexities of love. Ciarán Mac Murchaidh notes the literary context in which these special poems were written and gives new meaning to classical texts for a new readership. Beautifully illustrated by Anna Nielsen.
