Summary
"Island of Daemons interprets accounts of the Donegal pilgrimage including histories, guidebooks, devotional writing, newspaper and magazine articles, as well as three major poems by twentieth-century Irish poets." "The pilgrimage history documents religious and political themes as well as the experience of pilgrimage as arduous, enlightening, and humbling. Early writings often stressed the sensational, with miracles, devils, and hideous torture. Most Lough Derg writings have been devotional, but there is a strong tradition of satire as well. Skepticism competes with reverence. It is important to locate each modern poet within a tradition of choices made in times past. This study, attempting to register the variety of attitudes associated with Lough Derg, depends at times on hypothesis-speculative possibilities rather than definite sources or influences." "This study will be useful to Irish Studies students, teachers of Irish literature and history, as wel1 as those interested in cultural studies and religion."--BOOK JACKET
