The Companion also illuminates the historical contexts of these writers, and the events which sometimes directly inspired them - the Famine of 1845-8, which provided a theme for novelists, poets, and memoirists from William Carleton to Patrick Kavanagh and Peadar Ó Laoghaire; the founding of the Abbey Theatre and its impact on playwrights such as J.M. Synge and Padraic Colum; the Easter Rising that stirred Yeats to the `terrible beautyʼ of `Easter 1916ʼ. It offers a wealth of information on general topics, ranging from the stage Irishman to Catholicism, Protestantism, the Irish language, and university education in Ireland; and on genres such as annals, bardic poetry, and folksong.

The blue formica table by Robert Welch( Book )

2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 76 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Blue Formica Table is a long poem, a book of conversations between the poet and his father. It outlines a difficult relationship and the poems become a gesture towards someone unknown yet terribly familiar, echoing, perhaps, everyman's relationship with his father. The rigour of the father's approach, in language accurate, strenuous and bold, is released. The exchanges are sharp, the relationship is dramatically developed. The table forms a focus and an image, and the city of Cork is made vibrantly real throughout the poem."--Jacket
