Daniel Corkery's cultural criticism : selected writings by Daniel Corkery( Book )

7 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 145 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Daniel Corkery as cultural critic is a testimony to the sheer productivity of Corkery's eighty and more years. This book brings together oft-cited published material that is no longer easily available and unpublished manuscripts from the Corkery archive. The result is an edited collection that both reveals the central and recurring concerns of Corkery's critical writings and offers a unique insight into his wide-ranging cultural interests. Included in the collection are key chapters from The hidden Ireland and Synge and Anglo-Irish Literature, newspaper articles, literature reviews, a previously-unpublished essay and a radio broadcast. The book concludes with a selection of contemporary responses to Corkery's critical writings. This section of the book clearly indicates the strong reactions, both positive and negative, that his work originally elicited and allows the reader to situate Corkery within the intellectual debates of his day

4 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Daniel Corkery's short stories rank amongst the finest in the history of Irish literature. His stories have been acclaimed and anthologised, and have exerted a profound influence on subsequent generations of Irish writers including Frank O'Connor, Sean O'Faolain and Michael McLaverty. This new volume provides a comprehensive selection of these stories, and restores to print the work of one of Ireland's greatest storytellers." "All the stories in this volume are grounded in the Munster landscape, and touch on issues which preoccupied Corkery throughout his career including the relationship between people and place, the importance of traditional customs and practices in a modernising society and the significance of the Irish language in twentieth century Ireland. A sense of austerity dominates these stories, and many of the best stories share a sense of things unspoken or understated."--BOOK JACKET

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Blend the wild and fevered Irish imagination with their wonderful facility for recounting a dark, compelling tale, add a dash of the supernatural, and you have a potent brew of spine-tingling tales. This anthology of the best ghost stories from Ireland and Irish writers includes contributions from such masters of the art of raising as Sheridan Le Fanu, Bram Stoker, Oscar Wilde, W. B. Yeats and Rosa Mulholland. Within the pages of this collection you will find strange accounts of haunted houses, death warnings from beyond the grave, and revengeful spirits, all guaranteed to stir the imagination and chill the blood"--Jacket
