Since publishing her first collection of poetry, Nuala Ní Dhomhnaill has been hailed as the foremost contemporary Irish-Language Poet.

Selected Essays gathers together, for the first time, the prose work of this exceptional poet. Leading us through the West Kerry landscape of her childhood and on pilgrimages to Glendalough, Kerry and Turkey, Ní Dhomhnaill muses on writing, the Irish language, folkore and mythology.

Written over two decades, Selected Essays provides a new perspective on a changing Ireland, a window into the ‘psychic realities’ of Irish Culture. Mending the nets hat allow us to catch hold of our elusive traditions, Ní Dhomhnaill reveals what it means to be part of not only a linguistic community, but also an imaginative one.

For admirers of her poetry, Irish-language enthusiasts, and those interesting in the changing shape of Ireland, this book is unmissable.
