Half a century ago, Norman Jeffares wrote the definitive biography of W.B. Yeats, Ireland's preeminent poet. That book appeared just 10 years after Yeats's death, & much new material has come to light since. Drawing on freshly uncovered correspondence, manuscripts, contemporary memoirs, plus conversations with many of Yeat's friends and relations, this book produces a striking new portrait of the poet. It charts the many stages of Yeats' extraordinary career and tells the story of his turbulent personal life. This judicious and lively narrative, illustrated with photographs, paintings and drawings, provides the most complete picture we have yet of one of the century's most commanding and influential writers. -- Publisher description

Irish literature : the nineteenth century ( Book )
47 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in English and held by 1,125 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

Ireland's love poems : wonder and a wild desire by A. Norman Jeffares( Book )

All poets share a common task: to define, to memorialize, and never to exhaust the subject of love. Ireland's Love Poems highlights one country's extraordinary poetic tradition, in both the English and Irish languages, by male and female poets, both ancient and modern. Emotions of every kind are embodied in this celebration of love's pleasures and pains, in forms ranging from complex ancient Irish ballads to forthright contemporary feminist verse. These poems consider romance in all its stages: from the thrills of young love to the commitments of marriage, from grief to amorous rebirth, from affection to idolatry. The result is a cumulative portrait of love that mirrors Irish history in its complexity
