Über diesen Titel


Including samples of Gaelic literature in translation, this is a collection of Irish poetry from the age of Swift to the middle of the 20th century. Major names include Aogan O Rathaille, Jonathan Swift, Oliver Goldsmith, Henrietta Battier, James Clarence Mangan, Lady Wilde, anonymous writers on famine and terror, Oscar Wilde, W.B. Yeats and some of his survivors. Disinterring a tradition of enlightened outrage, the editor reconstructs a distinctively Irish poetic voice down through the centuries. Devoted to humane values yet wise to the duplicity of all self-proclaimed virtue, their voice has repeatedly adopted the mask of dramatic ferocity, with Swift's savage indignation setting the tone.

About the Author:

W.J. Mc Cormack is Professor of Literary History in the University of London and head of the English Department, Goldsmiths' College. He has published a biography of Sheridan Le Fanu (1980) and a radical interrogation of the Protestant Ascendancy (From Burke to Beckett, 1994). He is currently completing a biography of the Irish playwright J.M. Synge (Weidenfeld and Nicolson). W.J. McCormack also writes poetry under the name of Hugh Maxton. His first book of verse, The Noise of the Fields, was a Poetry Book Society Choice in 1976. The Engraved Passion: New and Selected Poems appeared in 1991.
