Most widely held works by Thomas McGrath
Letter to an imaginary friend by Thomas McGrath( Book )

14 editions published between 1962 and 1998 in English and held by 638 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For thirty years McGrath labored over this epic poem, publishing part one in 1963 and part four in 1985. Now, working from McGrath's archival notes, his longtime friend and colleague Dale Jacobson has prepared an authoritative text of the whole poem, making available for the first time in a single volume the greatest epic of our time. --Copper Canyon Press. I hope I can someday give this country or the few poetry lovers of this country something as large, soulful, honest, and beautiful as McGrath's great and still unappreciated epic of our mad and lyric century ... a book from which we can draw hope and sustenance for as long as we last. --Philip Levine. A tremendous odyssey of sense and spirit. --Library Journal. By turns fierce, somber, rollicking, and outrageous. --The Nation

Religious renewal and reform in the pastoral ministry of Bishop James Doyle of Kildare and Leighlin, 1786-1834 by Thomas McGrath( Book )

1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 76 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Bishop James Doyle of Kildare and Leighlin (J.K.L.), is regarded by many as the outstanding Irish bishop of the nineteenth century. This new book and its companion volume unravel and reveal the complex and brilliant strands of Doyle's career; they constitute a significant contribution to the historiography of nineteenth-century Ireland and England."--BOOK JACKET. "Doyle, who became bishop of Kildare and Leighlin at the age of thirty-three, dominated the hierarchy and he was the leader of the contemporary renewal and reform of the Irish Church. The focus of this study is Doyle's Tridentine administration of his diocese, and his influence on the Irish Church at national level. His extraordinary 'hands-on' approach to all aspects of diocesan management is investigated. His relationship with other leading bishops such as Troy and Murray of Dublin and Curtis of Armagh is portrayed."--BOOK JACKET. "Successive chapters examine the episcopal legacy of Doyle's predecessors and Doyle's programme for the renewal of the secular clergy, and the observance of the rule by religious, brothers and nuns. His church-building programme which included Carlow Cathedral and his numerous pastoral letters are considered."--BOOK JACKET
