The Oxford companion to Irish literature by Robert Welch( Book )

1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The literature of Ireland displays an exceptional richness and diversity - whether in Irish or English, by native Irish and Anglo-Irish writers or by outsiders like Edmund Spenser whose works were deeply imbued with the country in which he lived and wrote. In over 2,000 entries, the Companion to Irish Literature surveys the Irish literary landscape across some sixteen centuries, describing its features and landmarks. Entries range from ogam writing, developed in the 4th century, to the fiction, poetry, and drama of the 1990s; and from Cú Chulainn to James Joyce. There are accounts of authors as early as Adomnán, 7th century Abbot of Iona, up to contemporary writers such as Roddy Doyle, Brian Friel, Seamus Heaney, and Edna OʼBrien. Individual entries are provided for all major works, from Táin Bó Cuailnge - the Ulster saga reflecting the Celtic Iron Age - to Swiftʼs Gulliverʼs Travels, Edgeworthʼs Castle Rackrent, Ó Cadhainʼs Cré na Cille, and Banvilleʼs The Book of Evidence
Cuchulain of Muirthemne: the story of the men of the Red Branch of Ulster by Gregory( Book )

2 editions published between 1933 and 2000 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

More of a retelling than a translation, for which Irish writer, folklorist, and playwright Augusta Gregory (1852-1932) compiled a number of related tales into something like a single narrative. Her English is consciously archaic for her time, and attempts to retain some Irish linguistic structures, but the effect is mostly lilting rather than awkward, especially when read in bad stage Irish. She appends pronunciation guides for some of the more difficult names, and identifies some place names. Some of the events and characterizations are air-brushed to conform to Victorian standards of decency. Her friend William Butler Yeats contributes a rather lengthy preface. The original publisher was John Murray, London. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
