Deirdre of the Sorrows

Heftet / 2017 / Engelsk
The story of Deirdre of the Sorrows is widely known in Ireland, yet all but forgotten across the water in Scotland. This great tragic love story, which has its roots in the ninth or tenth century, is very much shared by both countries. For Deirdre, according to the legend, fled with her lover Naoise to Argyll. The oldest song in Scotland is believed to be Deirdre's haunting farewell to her adopted land as she returns once more to Ireland.In this new sequence, Deirdre of the Sorrows, Kenneth Steven beautifully reimagines the legend of this love story; he brings back to life Deirdre's journey and attempts to capture its timeless power.

A beautiful reimagining of a classic Irish and Scottish fable
'Steven tells his interpretation with a poet's ear for telling phrasing, and a reporter's eagerness for pace and development. There is also a great sense of place in his epic, and a brooding melancholy threaded through the initial triumph of love. Steven here writes with the music of his mother's singing of a tale of beauty and loss, ancient and yet resonating among our contemporary uncertainties' * Church Times *
