Stones of Aran: Pilgrimage

Stones of Aran: Pilgrimage

by Tim Robinson  •  Seamus Heaney (Introduction)

  • TRAVEL NARRATIVE
  • 2008
  • PAPER
  • 395 PAGES

A richly layered hymn to Arainn, largest of the Aran Islands, Robinson's adopted home in the west of Ireland. Mapmaker, walker, poetic and storyteller, Robinson draws on his own experiences -- and a walk around the island -- to weave tales of the cliff men, the natural history of the place, episodes of immigration and emigration, and the Irish language. Originally published in 1999, "Stones of Aran: Labyrinth" is forthcoming from NYRB Classics.  (IRE227, $18.95)
