Jack Yeats by Bruce Arnold( Book )

10 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 467 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jack Yeats (1871-1957) stands as a giant figure in Irish twentieth-century art. An isolated artist throughout his life, Yeats dominated solely through talent and the inventiveness of his paintings. This major biography tells the full story of the artist's life and analyses his prodigious output. This included not only some one thousand paintings, and vast numbers of illustrations, comic cartoons, drawings, and watercolours, but also seven novels and nine plays. An innately original man, Yeats eschewed all movements, took no pupils, taught only by example. Yet he exerted a fundamental and fascinating influence on Irish culture during his long and diverse life. Based on extensive research among primary sources, this book describes the life of the son of the portrait painter, John Butler Yeats, and younger brother of the poet, William Butler Yeats. Born in London, Jack spent his formative years in his grandparent's home in Ireland. His first show was held in England, but the young artist was inexorably drawn to Ireland where he created in drawings and paintings an Irish spirit and language that increasingly captured and glorified the heroism, mystery, myths, and legends of the Irish people. This book provides a compelling portrait of the complex and enigmatic artist whose reputations and artistic vision have become increasingly admired in the years since his death. -- Publisher description

Most ferocious literary controversies of recent times erupted. Joyceans worldwide were deeply divided over the merits and defects of the new edition. Arguments against the Gabler version grew in volume. The earlier 1961 Ulysses was restored to the market place. New publishers came forward to edit and produce new versions. And the legal copyright, which ran out at the end of 1991, has caused more chaos, particularly in light of a new version of Ulysses edited by John

Swift : an illustrated life by Bruce Arnold( Book )

4 editions published between 1999 and 2012 in English and held by 185 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Who was Jonathan Swift? Bruce Arnold's book examines this enigmatic figure in the light of his relationships - with his lover Esther Van Homrigh ('Vanessa'), his ward Esther Johnson ('Stella'), his patron Sir William Temple, and his male friends Congreve, Bolingbroke, Harley, Addison, Thomas Sheridan, and others. Though often criticized as a misanthrope, Swift can only be properly understood if we recognize his love of humanity and his capacity for friendship. Arnold traces this theme from Swift's youth in Ireland to his literary and political apprenticeship at Moor Park in Surrey, and on through the years of greatness - the brilliant satires and pamphlets, the Church diplomacy at the Court of Queen Anne, and the great writings of his maturity as Dean of St. Patrick's Cathedral in Dublin: the Drapier's Letters, A Modest Proposal, and Gulliver's Travels. Swift's long and varied life is illustrated through contemporary engravings of the places he lived in, the people he knew, and the figures who defined his age."--BOOK JACKET
