Abstract

Biddy Jenkinson's Conversation with the Romance of Mis and Dubh Rois of voices inherent in the original text, exploiting the tension resulting from the confrontation of ideologies. Jenkinson liberates Mis's character from the bonds of tradition, while retaining at the same time many of the familiar elements. Jenkinson embraces the Irish literary tradition in order to allow it to sound again for contemporary readers.
