A History Of Verse Translation From The Irish 1789 1897

by Robert Welch, A History Of Verse Translation From The Irish 1789 1897 Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download A History Of Verse Translation From The Irish 1789 1897 books, This study surveys the course of verse translation from the Irish, starting with the notorious Macpherson controversy and ending with the publication of George Sigerson's Bards of the Gael and Gall in 1897. Professor Welch considers some of the problems and challenges relating to the translation of Irish verse into English in the context of translation theory and ideas about cultural differentiation. Throughout the book, we see again and again the dilemma of poets who must be faithful to the spirit or the form of Irish verse, but who rarely have the ability to capture both. The relationship between Irish and English in the nineteenth century was, necessarily, a critical one, and the translators were often working at the centre of the crisis, whether they were aware of it or not. As Celticism evolved into nationalism and heroic idealism, these influences can be clearly seen in the development of verse translation from the Irish.

Literacy Language And Reading In Nineteenth Century Ireland

by Rebecca Anne Barr, Literacy Language And Reading In Nineteenth Century Ireland Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Literacy Language And Reading In Nineteenth Century Ireland books, This volume of essays explores the multiple forms and functions of reading and writing in nineteenth-century Ireland. This century saw a dramatic transition in literacy levels and in the education and language practices of the Irish population, yet the processes and full significance of these transitions remains critically under explored. This book traces how understandings of literacy and language shaped national and transnational discourses of cultural identity, and the different reading communities produced by questions of language, religion, status, education and audience. Essays are gathered under four main areas of analysis: Literacy and Bilingualism; Periodicals and their readers; Translation, transmission and transnational literacies; Visual literacies. Through these sections, the authors offer a range of understandings of the ways in which Irish readers and writers interpreted and communicated their worlds.

The Oxford Handbook Of Modern Irish Poetry

by Fran Brearton, The Oxford Handbook Of Modern Irish Poetry Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Oxford Handbook Of Modern Irish Poetry books, Forty chapters, written by leading scholars across the world, describe the latest thinking on modern Irish poetry. The Handbook begins with a consideration of Yeats's early work, and the legacy of the 19th century. The broadly chronological areas which follow, covering the period from the 1910s through to the 21st century, allow scope for coverage of key poetic voices in Ireland in their historical and political context. From the experimentalism of Beckett, MacGreevy, and others of the modernist generation, to the refashioning of Yeats's Ireland on the part of poets such as MacNeice, Kavanagh, and Clarke mid-century, through to the controversially titled post-1969 'Northern Renaissance' of poetry, this volume will provide extensive coverage of the key movements of the modern period. The Handbook covers the work of, among others, Paul Durcan, Thomas Kinsella, Brendan Kennelly, Seamus Heaney, Paul Muldoon, Michael Longley, Medbh McGuckian, and Ciaran Carson. The thematic sections interspersed throughout - chapters on women's poetry, religion, translation, painting, music, stylistics - allow for comparative studies of poets north and south across the century. Central to the guiding spirit of this project is the Handbook's consideration of poetic forms, and a number of essays explore the generic diversity of poetry in Ireland, its various manipulations, reinventions and sometimes repudiations of traditional forms. The last essays in the book examine the work of a 'new' generation of poets from Ireland, concentrating on work published in the last two decades by Justin Quinn, Leontia Flynn, Sinead Morrissey, David Wheatley, Vona Groarke, and others.

After The Irish

by Gregory A. Schirmer, After The Irish Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download After The Irish books, This anthology demonstrates that verse translation from the Irish represents, in its own right, a significant part of the tradition of Irish poetry written in English. Rather than offering the usual view of verse translation as a means of preserving and providing access to poetry written in Irish, this anthology foregrounds the aesthetic and cultural value of verse translation as poetry. The anthology is historical in form, beginning with a translation done in 1635, and concluding with the work of contemporary poets. The translations are grouped by individual translators, and arranged into five sections: Seventeenth and Eighteenth Centuries, Nineteenth Century, Irish Literary Revival, Modern Ireland and Contemporary Ireland. Each translator is introduced with a headnote and each translation is fully annotated and accompanied by the original text in Irish and a literal translation of it into English. The anthology includes a critical introduction which offers a concise but remarkably wide-ranging account of Irish poetry over the past three centuries, drawing attention to the relevant cultural and political circumstances from which it was wrought, with colonial and postcolonial issues particularly in mind. While at the same time the introduction gives careful and illuminating consideration to verse forms and other technical concerns. There is a strong sense of persistent cultural endeavour that gives coherence to a large group of writers and translators from diverse social, religious and political backgrounds. The anthology provides a great service to scholars working in the field of modern Irish literature by bringing together some of the well-known works of seminal poets and translators such as James Clarence Mangan and Samuel Ferguson together with literal translations of the originals on which their writings were based. In this respect, the anthology opens up a vivid and revealing perspective, allowing readers a privileged insight into the creative methods of some of Irelands leading authors and cultural architects. A comprehensive bibliography of primary sources concludes the book.

The Irish Poems Of J J Callanan

by Jeremiah Joseph Callanan, The Irish Poems Of J J Callanan Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Irish Poems Of J J Callanan books, Edited and introduced by Gregory A.Schirmer. Despite the relatively slender volume of his work and the obscurity that marked his brief life - he was known to his friends as 'the Recluse' - the Cork poet J. J. Callanan (1795-1829) has come to be recognised as one of the most significant Irish poets writing before Yeats. Inspired equally by English romanticism and Ireland's Gaelic culture, and drawing often on the life of Irish-speaking communities in West Cork, Callanan's work negotiates with remarkable effect between Ireland's two principal traditions, while giving voice to many of the cultural forces that were shaping Irish life in the early years of the nineteenth century. Callanan's poetry has been out of print since 1883. The present selection brings together all his poems having to do with Ireland, including those for which he is best known - his poetic translations from the Irish, lyrics such as 'Gougane Barra,' and his long autobiographical poem, 'The Recluse of Inchidony'. The poems are fully annotated, and original sources for the translations, where known, are given. The introduction provides a detailed account of Callanan's life, drawing in part on private letters and diaries, as well as a critical assessment of his poetry. There is also an extensive bibliography that includes a listing of all critical writings about Callanan.

The Harp Re Strung

by Mary Helen Thuente, The Harp Re Strung Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Harp Re Strung books, Thuente demonstrates that Irish literary nationalism actually began in the 1790s, with the United Irish movement, rather than in the 1840s, as has been generally accepted. By reevaluating the writings associated with the United Irish movement, especially the works of Thomas Moore and the Young Ireland writers, their context within the culture, and their impact on subsequent Irish nationalistic writing, Thuente establishes that the movement played a pivotal role in the development of Irish literary nationalism.
