This volume is a collection of stories by William Carleton, including "The Poor Scholar," "Tubber Derg," "The Hedge School" and several others. The collection is complete with an introduction and notes from William Butler Yeats. Carleton, it seems, was not just a great author of local Irish color, but was also in a sense, a great historian who recorded the sites and sounds of the world around him. Although he indeed alienated the sympathies of some Irishmen by his unsparing criticism of the darker side of Irish character, he was also appreciated by many for his wistful Irish humor and obvious love for his country. These stories are an important part of Irish literary history
