Shortlisted for Gradam Uí Shúilleabháin 2021
A retelling of the old Irish tale Buile Shuibhne. Mé Suibhne is a tale about mental illness, confrontation with the Church, about the tragedy of man. Here you will find the seven universal themes: love, loneliness, sorrow, joy, contrition, forgiveness, and redemption. In this important text from the European literary canon, one of Ireland’s greatest works, we find the first sensitive depiction of the insane and on the effect of mental illness on a person’s mind and life.
