Critique: 'From medieval spells to contemporary spellings, from eighteenth-century debates over women's education to current controversies about female sexuality, these rich and brilliant volumes are ambitiously abundant in their representation of Irish women's lives, works, and ways. It's impossible to imagine a more scrupulous, wide-ranging set of sources for students, scholars, and general readers who want to investigate the energetically flourishing literary and political traditions that have been shaped by (and shape) Ireland's women.' Sandra M. Gilbert, Professor of English, University of California, Davis 'These new volumes are a mighty achievement: the texts and contexts of more than a thousand years of Irish women's writing brilliantly, abundantly presented and comprehended. The editors have redefined the curriculum of studies.' Seamus Heaney, Nobel Laureate 'I have never seen an anthology which has so drastically extended one's frame of reference on its theme. It goes far beyond the root meaning of an 'anthology' - a literary garland - and instead gives us nothing less than the materials for a cultural history of women in Ireland. It is a unique piece of work and cannot fail to become a landmark of learning worldwide. Worth the wait; every bit of it.' Joep Leerssen, Professor of Modern European Literature, University of Amsterdam 'A monumental and heroic work of collective scholarship that will transform our understanding of the Irish literary tradition. Yes she said yes yes.' Elaine Showalter, Professor of English, Princeton University 'The literary event of the year . . .' Caroline Walshe, Literary Editor, Irish Times
