Lady Augusta Gregory's "Gods and Fighting Men" preserves the legends and lore of the earliest inhabitants of Ireland, the coming of the Tuatha De Danaan (The People of Dana) and the stories of Finn MacCumhail. Containing stories for Irish mythology form the earliest legends, Lady Gregory's book preserves the native Irish sense of story-telling throughout her account of the Gaelic world. Lady Gregory's eloquent speech and style breathes life into Ireland's forgotten heroes and gods. Although Lady Gregory was more of a storyteller than an academic, her book remains one of the best available on Irish mythology and is a great starting point for anyone interested in Gaelic lore.

About the Author

Isabella Augusta Lady Gregory (1852-1932) was an Irish dramatist and folklorist. With William Butler Yeats and others, she co-founded the Irish Literary Theatre and the Abbey Theatre and wrote numerous short works for both companies. Lady Gregory produced a number of books of retellings of stories taken from Irish mythology. Born into a class that identified closely with British rule, her conversion to cultural nationalism, as evidenced by her writings, was emblematic of many of the changes to occur in Ireland during her lifetime. Lady Gregory is mainly remembered for her work behind Irish Literary Revival. Her home at Coole Park, County Galway served as an important meeting place for leading Revival figures, and her early work as a member of the board of the Abbey was at least as important for the theatre's development as her creative writings. Her motto was taken from Aristotle: "To think like a wise man, but to express oneself like the common people."
