Spreading The Words – on Nuala Ní Dhomhnaill’s terms
Read by Meidhbhín Ní Úrdail
The connection between our state of mind and how we perceive things is explored in early Irish literature as well as in contemporary writings. Hear how the natural word is perceived by Irish writers in the past and by Nuala Ní Dhomhnaill in more recent times.
‘Spreading the Words’ is a series on the histories of Irish words from literature and everyday life written by Sharon Arbuthnot and Máire Ní Mhaonaigh and produced in association with the book A History of Ireland in 100 Words and the electronic Dictionary of the Irish Language.
