The Pure drop : a book of Irish drinking( Book )

1 edition published in 1987 in English and held by 43 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Every culture has its tokens of hospitality and welcome, and characteristically the Irish will offer a drink, with coaxings so ritualistic that a refusal can seem gauche, if not downright churlish. Given the Irish talent for wit and conversation, alcohol is fondly seen as the lubrication of most social occasions-from weddings to wakes, from christenings to ceilidhs and from cup finals to regular gatherings at the local for a bit of crack and banter. The centrality of drink also has a darker side; exuberance can deteriorate into drunken violence or the despair of addiction. Such excesses have fuelled, over the years, a strong temperance movement and today in Ireland expressions like 'signing the pledge' vie uneasily with 'what are you having'? The full gamut is represented here. John Killen has distilled, down to the purest drop, a wealth of Irish writing on the nation's favourite pastime-affectionate, censorious, comic, pathetic."

The rough field by John Montague( Book )

1 edition published in 1984 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The sixth edition of this major modern poetic sequence concludes with a revised and expanded section of notes. Since its publication in 1972, The Rough Field has been praised as the most significant attempt in poetry to understand Northern Ireland's troubled history. The New York Review of Books called it a kind of 'state of the nation' poem ... astonishingly successful; moving, too, and as soundly crafted as the rosewood fiddle which seems to play with mourning sweetness in its margins. With notes by Thomas Dillon Redshaw. --Wake Forest University Press
