Louis MacNeice : in a between world by Christopher J Fauske( )

9 editions published in 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 732 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This powerful new perspective on MacNeices life and work explores his poetry, prose and drama as part of a biographical re-evaluation. Christopher Fauske places the poets relationship with Ireland, the Second World War, his father and the key women in his life at its centre, unravelling unprecedented considerations that challenge the critical foundations of this luminary of Irish writing."--Publisher's description
An uncomfortable authority : Maria Edgeworth and her contexts( Book )

6 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 601 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In recent years, Maria Edgeworth (1768-1849) has been the subject of increasing interest. This collection of essays builds on scholarship that has helped canonize Edgeworth's writing. It also raises new questions about her place in English and Irish history, literary history, and women's history. In many ways, Edgeworth's entire adult life was an attempt to reconcile the irreconcilable, an attempt to justify and preserve her own privileged position even as she acknowledged the tenuousness of that position and as she sought to claim other privileges denied her. Edgeworth's writing challenges readers to understand her historical contexts as much as it obliged her to confront the politics of her literary authority."--Jacket
Jonathan Swift and the Church of Ireland, 1710-1724 by Christopher J Fauske( Book )

12 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 285 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the years between 1710 and 1724 Jonathan Swift published little. This hiatus in his work is often dismissed as a consequence of personal disillusionment and political disappointment, and studies of Swift commonly move from 1714 to 1724 with barely a mention of his activities in that decade. Consequently, Swift's apparently sudden conversion to a seeming love of, and concern for, Irish rights as espoused in The Drapier's Letters is either left unexplained, or is treated as a further symptom of his bitterness and contempt for English political life. This book situates Swift in the context of his political endeavours on behalf of the Church of Ireland, especially as demonstrated by the battles between Archbishop William King and the English-appointed authorities. It examines the contemporary economic climate, especially the increasing strains between Great Britain's trade goals and the continuing mercantilist structure of Irish economic life."--Jacket
A political biography of William King by Christopher J Fauske( )

10 editions published between 2011 and 2016 in English and held by 162 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

William King (1650-1729) was perhaps the dominant Irish intellect of the period from 1688 until his death in 1729. An Anglican (Church of Ireland) by conversion, King was a strident critic of John Toland and the clerical superior of Jonathan Swift
Money, power, and print : interdisciplinary studies on the financial revolution in the British Isles( Book )

4 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 132 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This collection gathers the expertise of scholars in several disciplines to examine the manner in which financial and economic arguments were expressed in pamphlets, broadsides, and longer works of literature in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, and to assess to what extent the political realities of the day were informed by these debates or, alternatively, shaped by that rhetoric. The contributors to the volume draw upon an extensive variety of contemporary sources and modern analyses of the formative years of the financial revolution to reexamine many of the existing conventional ideas about the relationship between money, power, and print, and to suggest that the subject is far more complex and interrelated than most studies up to now have indicated. Particular attention is paid to the fact that the financial revolution did not occur in London in isolation from the various regions of the British Isles." "The essays address the question of how money, power, and print influenced the contemporary emergence of a radically different public finance structure in the British empire and how retrospective understanding of the results have influenced historical readings of the texts and the events. A number of contributions offer detailed analyses of particular moments or structures in the reshaping of the public financial sphere, such as the parliamentary and pamphlet debate over the establishment of the Bank of England and proposals for a land bank as an alternative. Other essays focus on broader themes illustrative of larger trends during the period, such as the Scottish support for an expedition to Madagascar to take advantage of presumed pirate treasure on the island."--BOOK JACKET
