Móitífeanna agus Íomháineachas Míleata sa Dán Díreach
Herbert, Trevor
THESIS 9772 This thesis discusses military motifs and images found in the corpus of Classical Irish poetry, composed between c. 1200 and c. 1650. Extensive use is made of examples from the strictest syllabic metre in Classical Irish poetry, dán díreach, taken from published Poem-books, or duanairí, or from manuscript sources, as well as poems only recently made available with the publishing of A Bardic Miscellany, which were hitherto only available on the Irish Bardic Poetry Database compiled by Trinity College Dublin’s Department of Irish. Poems in other syllabic metres, such as ógláchas or brúilingeacht, are also used, as are prose or historical works from the period to clarify the use of certain motifs.
