ITS-SS15 Dánta Aodhagáin Uí Rathaille – Reassessments
64 pp. 2004 ISBN 1 870166 94 9. Breandán Ó Buachalla.
This new introduction to the Poems of Aodhagán Ó Rathaile, originally edited for the Society by P. S. Dinneen and Tadhg O’Donoughue (Main Series 3) was prepared by Professor Breandán Ó Buachalla of the University of Notre-Dame. As he has shown most recently in his major work Aisling Ghéar – na Stíobhartaigh agus an tAos Léinn 1603-1788, Professor Ó Buachalla is a leading authority on Irish poetry of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. His reassessment of these poems, which is accompanied by an edition of three poems not included in the Main Series volume, represents another significant contribution to the modern reception of the oeuvre of this very important poet.
