Abstract:

Cinderbiter collects work originally composed and performed centuries ago in Ireland, Scotland, and Wales, before notions of authorship were distinguishable from the oral traditions of myth and storytelling. Now, celebrated mythologist and storyteller Martin Shaw and award-winning poet Tony Hoagland have created dynamic, lyrically gorgeous versions of poems and stories from this Celtic tradition. In riveting shaggy narratives of fiends, fire, heroes, and heroines, in mysterious origin stories of Arthur and Merlin, and in haunting lyrics of elegy, praise, and heartbreak, these poems retain the rapturous supernatural imagination of the deep past, layered with the joy and sorrow of prayer and song. Shaw and Hoagland's collaboration revives a storehouse of Celtic culture, extending the life of this vital literature. Cinderbiter will plunge you deep into the romance of language and legend from which you'll emerge refreshed by contact with a wild, old imagination.
