"Louis MacNeice (1907-1963) is rightly regarded as one of the foremost Irish poets of this century, but he was also a distinctive, gifted, and popular playwright. This unique selection of eight of MacNeice's best plays, most of which were written for BBC Radio, draws on the most authoritative texts to provide a much-needed reminder of the power of his dramatic writing." "The volume comprises MacNeice's famous The Dark Tower, published here for the first time in its third and final version; the saga play They Met on Good Friday and the parable The Mad Islands, both of which use explicitly Irish subject-matter; the stage play One for the Grave, which mercilessly satirizes television and commercialism; the epic Christopher Columbus; He Had a Date (in its second version), an experiment in radio biography; Prisoner's Progress, a prize-winning parable about an escape from a prisoner-of-war camp; and MacNeice's last play, Persons from Porlock, which traces the nemesis of an artist and was broadcast just four days before MacNeice's own death." "This generous and representative selection makes available again MacNeice's entertaining and innovative blend of fantasy and realism, prose and verse, and offers important new perspectives on MacNeice's poetry."--Jacket
An investigation of the poetic imagery of Gerard Manley Hopkins by Alan Heuser( Book )
2 editions published in 1949 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
"The centenary of Hopkins's birth was celebrated in 1944. Many important books on the poet prepared at that time were restricted in scope or delayed in publication because of war-time conditions. Thus much material, including newly discovered manuscripts of Hopkins, has only recently (1948-49) been published. The work of W.H. Gardner is of special significance. In 1948 he edited the third edition of the Poems, which was enlarged to include many of Hopkins's early pieces. In 1949 he published the second volume of his Hopkins study, now the most complete and balanced examination of the poet. This scholarly activity favours a close investigation of the poetry.[...]" --
