The midnight court : a rhythmical bacchanalia from the Irish by Brian Merriman( Book )

30 editions published between 1909 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 135 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is a racy, word-rich, bawdy poem; full of uncompromising language and attitudes which have earned it increasing admiration and popularity since it was first composed by Brian Merriman in 1780. The bachelor uninterested in marriage and the aged bone-cold married man, the spouse-hunting lady and the dissatisfied spinster: the celebration of a woman's right to sex and marriage; disapproval of clerical celibacy--all these elements form part of the subject-matter of 'The Midnight Court'. Years ago, few speakers of Irish were without some knowledge of this full-blooded piece of literature, while very many people could recite the entire thousand and more lines of 'The Midnight Court' in the version popular in their own area. It is one of the most interesting as well as entertaining survivals of the literature of Gaelic Ireland in the Penal times where humour, irony, literary tradition and sense of proportion had not fallen victims to oppression and humiliation. The translation supplied with this edition of Merriman's poem is an endeavour to come as near as possible to the rural expression and attitudes which are part and parcel of the style of the original. Although actual use of dialect is avoided, the translator has used words and modes of exprsession occasionally which are found in English as spoken in the Irish countryside"--Publisher's description, back cover

The Faber book of best new Irish short stories, 2004-5( Book )

6 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 116 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 'The Joke' a middle-aged man sits listening to his wife's conversation on the phone, at once bitter and sweetly yearning, in 'The Cocktail Hour' a couple wander the night haunted, seemingly lost in a reverie of the jazz age and the movies; in 'Matters of Life and Death' two young brothers spend the night at the house of the local doctor and his wife, and together the four of them end up in a late-night dance ... In this collection, his first for Faber and Faber, David Marcus has brought together some of Ireland's best-loved writers with previously unpublished authors. From Ireland itself to the United States, from rural Peru to the mountains of the Himalayas, these stories demonstrate the complexity of emotion and memory that characterise the very finest short stories, and bear testimony to the fact that it is an art form still very much alive and flourishing"--Jacket
