dc.description.abstract Cath Almaine, a tenth-century tale on the battle of Allen, presents a remarkable sequence of verbal and vocal acts. They include pledges and promises, curse and prophecy, narrative before the battle and after it, a cry of victory given by the men of Leinster and one given by the war-goddess, the Fool's roar that memorializes the battle, sweet music heard by the slain warriors and a piteous warrior-chant heard by the victors. The tale points to the necessary interaction of word and deed, and to the absolute futility of warfare as an instrument of social order. en_US
