Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Offering poems that draw vividly on the landscape, history, and mythology of Ireland--while making connections with her home and childhood--this collection of poems reflects the author's personal journey and the many "invasions" of past and present. She adapts and transforms several ancient Irish texts, rewriting their stories for a contemporary world.
