by Robert Welch, The Concise Oxford Companion To Irish Literature Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Concise Oxford Companion To Irish Literature books, The literature of Ireland, written in both Irish and English, displays an exceptional richness and diversity. This Concise Companion surveys the Irish literary landscape across sixteen centuries up to the present, describing its features and landmarks. Entries range from ogam writing, developed in the 4th century, to the fiction, poetry, and drama of the 1990s. There are accounts of authors as early as Adamnan, 7th century Abbot of Iona, through to contemporary writers such as Roddy Doyle, Brian Friel, Seamus Heaney, and Edna O'Brien. There arealso brief accounts of major works such as Tain Bo Cuailnge - the Ulster saga reflecting the Celtic Iron Age - to Swift's Gulliver Travels, O Cadhain's Cre na Cille, and Banville's The Book of Evidence. The entries highlight the historical contexts of the writers and the events that sometimes directly inspired them - the Famine of 1845-8; the founding of the Abbey Theatre and its impact on playwrights such as J.M. Synge and Padraic Colum; the Easter Rising that stirred Yeats to the 'terriblebeauty' of 'Easter 1916'. There is a wealth of information on a wide range of topics including Catholicism, Protestantism, the Irish language, and on genres such as annals, bardic poetry, and folksong, as well as 140 completely new entries on present day writers and their works. There is a chronology of major historical events and cross-references that allow the reader to explore the entire interconnected network of relationships that is Irish literature.

Modern Irish Writers

by Alexander G. Gonzalez, Modern Irish Writers Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Modern Irish Writers books, The Irish Renaissance began around 1885 and arguably has continued to the present day, with no apparent sign of coming to an end. The period has produced some of the richest literature in Irish history, and authors such as Samuel Beckett, James Joyce, William Butler Yeats, and Seamus Heaney are among the leading writers of the twentieth century. This reference provides alphabetically arranged entries for more than 70 modern Irish writers. Each entry includes a brief biography, a discussion of the author's major works and themes, an overview of the writer's critical reception, and a bibliography of primary and secondary sources. An opening essay surveys the critical response to Irish literature after 1885, and an extensive bibliography concludes the volume.

Ascendancy And Tradition In Anglo Irish Literary History From 1789 To 1939

by W. J. McCormack, Ascendancy And Tradition In Anglo Irish Literary History From 1789 To 1939 Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Ascendancy And Tradition In Anglo Irish Literary History From 1789 To 1939 books, The Anglo-Irish literary renaissance that flowered between Edmund Burke's last years and the generation of Yeats and Joyce had close ties to European Romanticism and was a critical force in the development of modernist literature in the origins of Protestant Ascendancy ideology in the alarm of the 1790's, McCormack traces its cultural significance through an examination of a number of central texts and concepts. Beginning with Burke's correspondence and Reflections, McCormack goes on to discuss Maria Edgeworth's fiction, the political vocabulary of T.D. Gregg and E.W. Gladstone, Celticism, the drama and poetry of Teats, and Joyce's oeuvre as a whole. A wider European context is provided by reference to Wordsworth, Chateaubriand, and an excursion through a critical period in Irish cultural history asking why it was that the late 19th century should have been a time of such prolific literary achievements and examining the part played by the Protestant Ascendancy on the one hand, and the force of tradition on the other.
