Read full description of the books:



After I read Grania: She-King of the Irish Seas by Morgan Llywelyn, I wanted to learn more about Grania, and I ordered this little book from my favorite online used book site.

This is not a long book but it is packed with information. About Grace O'Malley, the way of life in her day (she was born in 1530), society and politics during her life, and more. There is a chapter about her descendants, an appendix with songs that had been written about her, even the answers she gave to eigtheen "articles of interrogatory" asked by a Lord Burghley and dated July 1593.

Very interesting, but slightly overwhelming. The author built on legends, folklore, and English State records, often reproducing pertinent sections from such reports. This could get tricky for my little pea brain: such passages were naturally written in Elizabethan style of spelling and phrasing.

I enjoyed th book. I know that it was non-fiction, but I confess I had hoped for a bit more life on the pages. The reading got dry and cumbersome at times. But still, a fascinating look at a true legend's life, and a microscopic peek at some complicated Irish political history.
