Beschreibung

First Edition. 23.3cm x 15.5cm. xx, (2) 402 pages. Original illustrated softcover. Excellent condition with only minor signs of wear. Minor stain on front board. Irish Literature Eighteenth Century illustrates not only the impressive achievement of the great writers-Swift, Berkeley, Burke, Goldsmith and Sheridan-but also shows the varied accomplishment of others, providing unexpected, entertaining examples from the pens of the less well known. Here are examples of the witty comic dramas so successfully written by Susannah Centlivre, Congreve, Steele, Farquhar and Macklin. There are serious and humorous essayists represented, including Steele, Lord Orrery, Thomas Sheridan and Richard Lovell Edgeworth. Beginning with Gulliver's Travels, fiction includes John Amory's strange imaginings, Sterne's stream of consciousness, Frances Sheridan's insights, Henry Brooke's sentimentalities and Goldsmith's charm. Poetry ranges from the classical to the innovative. Graceful lyrics, anonymous jeux d'esprit, descriptive pieces, savage satires and personal poems are written by very different poets, among them learned witty women, clergymen and drunken ne'er-do-wells. Politicians, notably Grattan and Curran, produced eloquent speeches; effective essays and pamphlets accompanied political activity. Personal letters and diaries-such as the exuberant Dorothea Herbert's Recollections-convey the changing ethos of this century's literature, based on the classics and moving to an increasing interest in the translation of Irish literature. This book conveys its fascinating liveliness and rich variety. Peter van de Kamp (1956), poet, anthologist, translator, critic and scholar, was born in The Hague, where he enjoyed a Jesuit education. He studied English in Leiden, where he taught, and assisted A.G.H. Bachrach in editing The Journals of Lodewijk Huygens. The recipient of two European Exchange scholarships, he read Anglo-Irish Literature at University College, Dublin, and was conferred Ph.D. in 1985, for his The Literary Estate of Pamela Hinkson. He went on to head the Language Acquisition section of the English Department, Leiden University. In 1989, he received the prestigious Newman Scholarship from University College, Dublin. He co-authored a biography of Flann O'Brien with Peter Costello, compiled a collection of stories by Katharine Tynan, edited with Jacques Chuto et al., The Collected Works of James Clarence Mangan, with Frank van Meurs the most comprehensive bilingual anthology of Dutch poetry in English (Turning Tides),with Peter Liebregts a collection of essays on W.B. Yeats and politics (Tumult of Images), and with A. Norman Jeffares the recent series of anthologies, Irish Literature: The Eighteenth Century and Irish Literature: The Nineteenth Century. In all, he has published 18 books. His first collection of poetry, Notes, was published in 1999; it was followed by In Train and, most recently, by Scratch & Sniff (edited by Lim Lee Ching & Jeremy Fernando). His poetry has been described by Neil Murphy as 'writ[ing] with brutal candour about the heart of human fragility. Poems like this are in communion with their own making, their own song'. (Amazon).
