The Táin

From the Irish epic Táin Bó Cuailnge

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

The Táin Bó Cuailnge, centre-piece of the eighth-century Ulster cycle of heroic tales, is Ireland's greatest epic. It tells the story of a giant cattle-raid, the invasion of Ulster by the armies of Medb and Ailill, queen and king of Connacht, and their allies, seeking to carry off the great Brown Bull of Cuailnge. Thomas Kinsella's translation is the first attempt to present a 'living version' of the story, complete and unbowdlerized. It is based on the partial texts in two medieval manuscripts, and includes a group of related stories which prepare for the action of the Táin. There are 31 brush drawings by Louis le Brocquy, and three maps.
