Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In a volume that has become a standard text in Irish studies, editors Maureen O'Rourke Murphy and James MacKillop survey thirteen centuries of Irish literature, including old Irish epic and Iyric poetry, Irish folksongs and a selection of nineteenth-century prose and poetry. For each author the editors provide a biographical sketch, a brief discussion of how his or her selections relate to a larger body of work, and a selected bibliography. In addition, this new volume also includes a larger sampling of women writers.

Book News Annotation:

Two past presidents of the American Committee for Irish Studies update their 1987 anthology to account for its popularity among independent readers as well as in undergraduate courses as it was intended. They include works translated from Irish and works written in English from the eighth century to the late 20th.
