The Great War in Irish poetry : W.B. Yeats to Michael Longley by Fran Brearton( Book )
12 editions published between 2000 and 2003 in English and held by 469 libraries worldwide
"The Great War in Irish Poetry explores the impact of the First World War on the work of W. B. Yeats, Robert Graves, and Louis MacNeice in the period 1914-45, and on three contemporary Northern Irish poets, Derek Mahon, Seamus Heaney, and Michael Longley. Its concern is to place their work, and memory of the Great War, in the context of Irish culture and politics in the twentieth century. The historical background to Irish involvement in the Great War is explained, as are the ways in which some of the events of 1912-20 - the Home Rule crisis, the loss of the Titanic, the Battle of the Somme, the Easter Rising - still reverberate in the politics of remembrance in Northern Ireland."--BOOK JACKET

Reading Michael Longley by Fran Brearton( Book )
7 editions published in 2006 in English and Undetermined and held by 245 libraries worldwide
"Michael Longley has been called 'one of the finest lyric poets of our century' (John Burnside). This study is the first full-length assessment of his work, and looks in turn at all the major collections he has published over the past 40 years, and at the extraordinary growth of his reputation and influence." "In this book, Fran Brearton draws on letters, manuscripts, published and personal interviews with Michael Longley, as well as on his memoir, Tuppenny Stung, and his recent researches into his father's military career. She shows how his poetry is shaped by the dislocation and tensions of his English parentage and Irish upbringing, making him one of the most imaginatively various and formally inventive poets writing today."--Jacket
Modern Irish and Scottish poetry by Peter Mackay( Book )
7 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and held by 236 libraries worldwide
"The comparative study of the literatures of Ireland and Scotland has emerged as a distinct and buoyant field in recent years. This collection of new essays offers the first sustained comparison of modern Irish and Scottish poetry, featuring close readings of texts within broad historical and political contextualisation. Playing on influences, crossovers, connections, disconnections and differences, the 'affinities' and 'opposites' traced in this book cross both Irish and Scottish poetry in many directions. Contributors include major scholars of the new 'archipelagic' approach, as well as leading Irish and Scottish poets providing important insights into current creative practice. Poets discussed include W.B. Yeats, Hugh MacDiarmid, Sorley MacLean, Louis MacNeice, Edwin Morgan, Douglas Dunn, Seamus Heaney, Ian Hamilton Finlay, Michael Longley, Medbh McGuckian, Nuala ni Dhomhnaill, Don Paterson and Kathleen Jamie. This book is a major contribution to our understanding of poetry from these islands in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries"--
Incorrigibly plural : Louis MacNeice and his legacy by Fran Brearton( Book )
7 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 159 libraries worldwide
Illuminating the work of a writer whose achievement and influence is increasingly recognized as central to modern poetry in English, this record is a celebration of the diversity and vitality of Louis MacNeice's writing. With contributions by fellow poets and critics-such as Neil Corcoran, Paul Farley, Leontia Flynn, Derek Mahon, Peter McDonald, and Clair Wills among others-it features a memoir by MacNeice's son, the late Dan MacNeice, and various biographical accounts. More than a retrospective work of criticism, this compilation also offers insight into MacNeice's complex political awareness
