Eiléan Ní Chuilleanáin’s Selected Poems gathers poems from six collections of poetry, from Acts and Monuments (1972) to The Girl Who Married the Reindeer (2001), and proves that she is one of the major poets in Ireland. While her numerous images of mythical figures, travelers, pilgrims, and womenespecially of the veiled subject of the nunremind us of our deepest inner sanctum, with its litany of spiritual truths, human fears and needs, these images also catalogue the importance of the ordinary and the domestic as new metaphors for human experiences and emotions. Ní Chuilleanáin allows those who have been silenced in history to surface in art as surreal but living presences.
