We’re very pleased to announce a new edition of Grania by Emily Lawless, edited by Michael O’Flynn.
First published in 1892, Grania is the story of a fisherman’s daughter from the Islands of Aran, off the coast of Galway. Grania O’Malley’s life is circumscribed by family duty and her destiny as wife to her feckless fiancé, Murdough Blake. When she realises he wants her only for her money and property, Grania rejects him in favour of heroism, although with tragic consequences.
With her unique poetic style, Emily Lawless evokes a vivid picture of island life, with its unforgiving landscape and grinding poverty.
