Description: The Ulster Cycle continues, following on the footsteps of the highly acclaimed The Raid and The Feast. The Sorrow's includes three stories which symbolically portray Ireland's cultural heritage. The first story, "The Fate of the Children of Tuirenn, " is a tragic one in which three brothers must pay a "blood-fine" for murdering an enemy of their clan. The tale reflects the great sorrow of Ireland's civil war. "The Fate of the Children of Lir" tells of an evil stepmother who transforms her four stepchildren into swans. After nine hundred years they are released from their fate, symbolic of the triumph of Christianity over paganism and the tragedy of the Irish being driven from their homeland. The final story, "The Fate of the Children of Uisliu, " introduces us to Conchobor, the Red Branch King, as he forces the young yet strong-willed Deirdre to be his wife just as England sought to force the Irish into servitude. Filled with adventure and tragedy, The Sorrows provides another insightful look into Ireland's past through three of its most enduring tales.
