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

Who was Jonathan Swift? Bruce Arnold's provocative book examines this enigmatic figure in the light of his relationships - with his lover Esther Vanhomrigh ('Vanessa'), his ward Esther Johnston ('Stella'), and his many great male friends: Congreve, Temple, Bolingbroke, Harley, Pope, Addison, Thomas Sheridan, and others. Though often caricatured as a bitter 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 and his literary and political apprenticeship at Moor Park in Sur
