Review of Carey, John (ed.): Buile Suibhne: perspectives and reassessments

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

Abstract

The medieval Irish saga Buile Shuibhne (‘The Frenzy of Suibhne’, hereinafter BS) has attracted scholars’ attention for over a hundred years. Since the first publication of the tale for the Irish Texts Society by J. O’Keeffe in 1913 (reprinted in 1996 with a new introduction by J. F. Nagy), the tale has been subjected to intensive inquiry by Jackson (1940, 1953), Chadwick (1942), Lehmann (1953-4, 1955), Carney (1955), Ó Riain (1974), and more recently, Mac Mathúna (1981), Nagy (1982-3), Carey (1984), Frykenberg (1984), Pehnt (1999), Mikhailova (1999), Slavin (2006), Bergholm (2012) and many others. The volume under review is different from the similar collections published in the Irish Texts Society Subsidiary Series. Firstly, it has been dedicated to the memory of Seamus Heaney, whose untimely departure prevented him from speaking about his own translation of Buile Shuibhne from the Irish language (Heaney 1983). Secondly, “one radical reinterpretation of the figure of the geilt” (p. xii) by Ó Riain (1972), was republished here – “the first time that a volume in this series has thus returned earlier material to print”.
