About: This book is all that is needed in relation to the literary output of the multifaceted and multi-talented Caitlín Maude. It collects in a single volume two earlier books (‘Dánta’, 1984 and ‘Drámaiocht, agus Prós’, 1988). As well as the poems, plays and prose penned by Caitlín Maude, the book contains two important essays on her work. The first is by Tomás Mac Siomóin in the form of the foreword to the poems (pp 2-17). The second is by the editor, Ciarán Ó Coigligh and entitled ‘Léamh an Eagarthóra ar na Dánta’ (pp 83-111). Both essays are in the Irish Language.
