The literature of Ireland : criticism and culture by Terence Brown( )

20 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 1,300 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One of Ireland's foremost literary and cultural historians, Terence Brown's command of the intellectual and cultural currents running through the Irish literary canon is second to none, and he has been enormously influential in shaping the field of Irish studies. These essays reflect the key themes of Brown's distinguished career, most crucially his critical engagement with the post-colonial model of Irish cultural and literary history currently dominant in Irish Studies. With essays on major figures such as Yeats, MacNeice, Joyce and Beckett, as well as contemporary authors including Seamus Heaney, Derek Mahon, Michael Longley, Paul Muldoon and Brian Friel, this volume is a major contribution to scholarship, directing scholars and students to new approaches to twentieth-century Irish cultural and literary history"--
Dubliners by James Joyce( Book )

44 editions published between 1992 and 2014 in English and Spanish and held by 1,027 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For the centennial of its original publication, an irresistible Graphic Deluxe Edition of one of the most beloved books of the 20th century Perhaps the greatest short story collection in the English language, James Joyce's Dubliners is a vivid and unflinching portrait of "dear dirty Dublin" at the turn of the twentieth century. These fifteen stories, including such unforgettable ones as "Araby," "Grace," and "The Dead," delve into the heart of the city of Joyce's birth, capturing the cadences of Dubliners' speech and portraying with an almost brute realism their outer and inner lives. Dubliners is Joyce at his most accessible and most profound, and this edition is the definitive text, authorized by the Joyce estate and collated from all known proofs, manuscripts, and impressions to reflect the author's original wishes."

That Island Never Found is a collection of poems and essays in honour of Terence Brown by some of Ireland’s leading writers and scholars. In studies of Louis MacNeice, W.B. Yeats and the cultural history of twentieth-century Ireland, Brown has played a central role for decades in the island’s critical imagination.

Roy Foster, Seamus Heaney, Declan Kiberd, Edna Longley, Derek Mahon, Paul Muldoon and Helen Vendler are among the writers and the critics to join in celebration of Brown’s contribution to Irish intellectual life. Each provides individual perspective on the complex interactions between writers, their work and society, the attention to which is a sign of Brown’s presence, a commitment to writing and its place that has been foundation to his life in letters. The book contains a new poem by Seamus Heaney written in honour of Terence Brown. It is called Human Chain (for Terence Brown)
Ireland : a social and cultural history, 1922-2001 by Terence Brown( Book )

8 editions published between 2004 and 2011 in English and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The seminal history of Ireland's most unusual century, thoroughly updated for the new millennium. With its starting point the bloody creation of the Irish Free State in 1922, Ireland: A Social and Cultural History explores how Irish identity has shifted across eighty years of unprecedented change and violence. What was the legacy of De Valera and Sinn Fein ' or of remaining neutral during the Second World War' What were the effects of the establishment of a formally recognised Republic of Ireland in 1949 and thus the continued status of Northern Ireland as part of Great Britain' How has the state of virtual civil war that has existed between Catholics and Protestants in Northern Ireland ever since altered the course of Irish history' Terence Brown evokes all the turbulent (and often confusing) events of the last century and makes sense of them, showing with skill and wit just how Irish culture escaped from W B Yeats' backward-looking Celtic Twilight towards modernity. Ireland: A Social and Cultural History is a fascinating work of synthesis ' and an unforgettable book. Note that it has not been possible to include the same picture content that appeared in the original print version
