"It's the quiet confidence of her voice, its modesty, its convinced seriousness and toughness, its thoughtful discretion and its refusal of easy options that I especially like, as well as the kind of hard but at the same time (and in every sense) careful life in which she bathes her sense... In volume after slim volume (she is the most exacting pruner of her own work, or she has the patience to wait for the poem that's right) she has accumulated a body of exquisite and substantial work that places her among the most accomplished poets now writing in, or out of, Ireland."

"It is fitting that Mary Magdalene--who has been seen as whore, apostle, love, and priestess--be the patron saint of this book.  Ni Chuilleanain's eccentric poems uncover hidden dramas in many guises, and she continually holds us captive by her luminous voice." Molly Bendall, Denver Quarterly

Revised edition

"All through the book, she presents a world which she marks out, measures and makes known.  The 'acts and monuments' of time, memory, myth and history felsh out the ghosts of her world.... "The Second Voyage" is a joy to read, a model of craft and vision and a quietly original poetry which does not jettison tradition." Philip Casey, Cencrastus

"There is something second-sighted about Eiléan Ní Chuilleanáin's work. Her poems see things anew, in a rinsed and dreamstruck light. They are at once at plain as an anecdote told on the doorstep and as haunting as a soothsayer's greetings." Seamus Heaney
