Brendan Behan's genius was to strike a chord between critic and common man. When he died, at the age of 41, he was arguably the most celebrated Irish writer of the twentieth century. After the Wake is a collection of seven prose works and a series of articles. It includes all that exists of an unfinished novel, ‘The Caracombs', and pieces together items whose comic and fanciful accounts evoke Flann O'Brien. Also featured are works of acknowledged excellence, ‘The Confirmation Suit' and ‘A Woman of No Standing'. This writing bears all the hallmarks of the author's talent – an ab

The Georgics by Virgil( Book )

‘A genuine maverick . . . a mixture of coruscating satire, rhapsodic lyricism and humane vernacular . . . ' –– The Sunday Times Michael Hartnett subscribed always to the idea of the poet as a chronicler of his race: ‘I have tried to write for the people . . . ' begins one of the poems in this collection of ballads, satires, squibs and other occasional verses. As he casts his eye on ‘the state of the nation', on local shopkeepers' and publicans' greed (‘The Ballad of Salad Sunday'), or curses ‘those who stole our cat', he connects with sources in ancient traditions. The centrepiece, ‘Ma
