The Oxford companion to Irish literature by Robert Welch( Book )

35 editions published between 1995 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 1,556 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The literature of Ireland displays an exceptional richness and diversity - whether in Irish or English, by native Irish and Anglo-Irish writers or by outsiders like Edmund Spenser whose works were deeply imbued with the country in which he lived and wrote. In over 2,000 entries, the Companion to Irish Literature surveys the Irish literary landscape across some sixteen centuries, describing its features and landmarks. Entries range from ogam writing, developed in the 4th century, to the fiction, poetry, and drama of the 1990s; and from Cú Chulainn to James Joyce. There are accounts of authors as early as Adomnán, 7th century Abbot of Iona, up to contemporary writers such as Roddy Doyle, Brian Friel, Seamus Heaney, and Edna OʼBrien. Individual entries are provided for all major works, from Táin Bó Cuailnge - the Ulster saga reflecting the Celtic Iron Age - to Swiftʼs Gulliverʼs Travels, Edgeworthʼs Castle Rackrent, Ó Cadhainʼs Cré na Cille, and Banvilleʼs The Book of Evidence

The blue formica table by Robert Welch( Book )

2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 75 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
