Synopsis:
  • "Among the many retellings of hero tales, Miss Sutcliff's The Hound of Hister [The Hound of Ulster (1963)] stands out awesome and harsh, the allegiance to fate made credible for a contemporary audience. Now the time of Cuchulain is past, and the scene shifts to the south of Ireland, and to the realm of fairy tale and folklore; Finn is the doer of great deeds, hitherto seen singly, here brought together in a loose sequence. ..." --Kirkus Reviews, contemporary review undated online (above)
  • Wikipedia links its article on the Fenian Cycle, or Ossianic Cycle, "a body of prose and verse centring on the exploits of the mythical hero Fionn mac Cumhaill (Old, Middle, Modern Irish: Find, Finn, Fionn) and his warriors the Fianna."
