Taking its title from the myth surrounding St Bridgid's flame in Kildare, Ireland, Guarding the Flame explores women's voices from Irish history and myth, from the every day woman in the market who imagines herself transformed if only briefly, to the voice of the river goddess Sionna, to Joyce's Nora Barnacle. The collection contains poems of nature, of myth, of travel in Europe, Nepal, and Africa. There are poems examining belonging/unbelonging, metamorphosis, inconstancy, and the country where Majella Cullinane currently resides, New Zealand. Guarding the Flame is her debut collection.
