Example text

Cú Chulainn shames her by cropping her hair, and in a mock-sexual encounter drives a stone shaft through her clothes. Later, when she allows that an Ulster hero is her real love, this information is turned into an entrapment; he is killed and she dies of shame and humiliation. The manner in which the male homosocial bond overrides all other social cohesion in the saga is brought out most clearly in the mourning for Ferdiad. In the Recension II version Cú Chulainn usurps the woman’s role of lamenting the dead and asserts his primary right to grieve his fallen friend.

For instance, according to medieval Irish accounts of the circumstances leading up to Finn’s conception and birth, an ally of Finn’s father Cumall takes out an eye of Cumall’s chief enemy, subsequently named Goll, “Blind in One Eye,” in a situation reminiscent of Lug’s fight with his evil-eyed maternal grandfather Balor. This ally moreover is named Luchet, a designation seemingly based on Lug (Nagy 1985:86–88). The Irish Finn is cognate with Welsh Gwyn(n), which as an adjective bears the same range of meanings as its Irish counterpart, and as a name is born by Gwyn(n) ap Nudd, a hunter and chieftain already mentioned in medieval Welsh literature, including Arthurian tale and saints’ lives (Foster 1953).
