Irish literature : the nineteenth century( Book )

45 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in English and held by 1,096 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Irish Literature: The Eighteenth Century illustrates not only the impressive achievement of the great writers - Swift, Berkeley, Burke, Goldsmith and Sheridan - but also shows the varied accomplishment of others, providing unexpected, entertaining examples from the pens of the less well known. Here are examples of the witty comic dramas so successfully written by Susannah Centlivre, Congreve, Steele, Farquhar and Macklin. There are serious and humorous essayists represented, including Steele, Lord Orrery, Thomas Sheridan and Richard Lovell Edgeworth. Beginning with Gulliver's Travels, fiction includes John Amory's strange imaginings, Sterne's stream of consciousness, Frances Sheridan's insights, Henry Brooke's sentimentalities and Goldsmith's charm. Poetry ranges from the classical to the innovative. Graceful lyrics, anonymous jeux d'esprit, descriptive pieces, savage satires and personal poems are written by very different poets, among them learned witty women, clergymen and drunken ne'er-do-wells. Politicians, notably Grattan and Curran, produced eloquent speeches; effective essays and pamphlets accompanied political activity. Personal letters and diaries - such as the exuberant Dorothea Herbert's Recollections - convey the changing ethos of this century's literature, based on the classics and moving to an increasing interest in the translation of Irish literature."--Jacket

... This odd but compelling collection transforms Dutch poems into English written with a heavy brogue ... The book offers much work that is startling, though readers may find themselves partial to the marvelous touch of Michael O'Loughlin and Eamon Grennan.--Publishers Weekly

Selected prose of James Clarence Mangan by James Clarence Mangan( Book )

7 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 94 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"James Clarence Mangan is Ireland's foremost Romantic poet. But he was also a prolific writer of prose. From the age of 28, with his publication of the politically engaged 'The Two Flats: Our Quackstitution', this so-called poete maudit remained in constant dialogue with a wider reading public. Whatever its style or subject, every article in this selection of Mangan's prose shows a man with his finger on the pulse, following his one precept - not to bore."--Jacket
