New edition of the poem (supersedes L. McKenna 1919 [Best2 1759], 65-68), based on Book of O’Conor Don 50r-51r (33 qq.); now attributed to Tadhg Óg Ó hUiginn. With a selection of variant readings from other MSS, translation, commentary and textual notes. Also includes a discussion of the motif of the blood-spotted hand, shown to differ in its structure from that in Gesta Romanorum but analogous to that used by Shakespeare for his Lady Macbeth. Provides an appendix with the translation of the Gesta Romanorum version of De amore inordinato.
