Irish Texts Society Subsidiary Series Volume 08: A New Introduction to Giolla na Fhiugha (The Lad of the Ferule) and Eachtra Cloinne Rígh na h-Ioruaidhe (The Adventures of the King of Norway)
The inaugural volume of the Main Series was edited by the Society's first President, Douglas Hyde (Main Series 1). This new introduction, provided by Dr Máire Ní Mhaonaigh of the University of Cambridge in 1998 to mark the centenary of the foundation of the Society, includes a full discussion of the thematic structure, style, and manuscript tradition of both tales. Describing the tales as 'significant' in their own right, Dr Ní Mhaonaigh shows them to be two very different examples of 'Romantic' tales.
