Cuchulain of Muirthemne: the story of the men of the Red Branch of Ulster by Gregory( Book )

62 editions published between 1902 and 2001 in English and Undetermined and held by 913 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

More of a retelling than a translation, for which Irish writer, folklorist, and playwright Augusta Gregory (1852-1932) compiled a number of related tales into something like a single narrative. Her English is consciously archaic for her time, and attempts to retain some Irish linguistic structures, but the effect is mostly lilting rather than awkward, especially when read in bad stage Irish. She appends pronunciation guides for some of the more difficult names, and identifies some place names. Some of the events and characterizations are air-brushed to conform to Victorian standards of decency. Her friend William Butler Yeats contributes a rather lengthy preface. The original publisher was John Murray, London. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR

Where there is nothing by W. B Yeats( )

11 editions published between 1987 and 2013 in English and held by 860 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

William Butler Yeats (1865 - 1939) is best described as Ireland's national poet in addition to being one of the major twentieth-century literary figures of the English tongue. To many literary critics, Yeats represents the 'Romantic poet of modernism, ' which is quite revealing about his extraordinary style that combines between the outward emphasis on the expression of emotions and the extensive use of symbolism, imagery and allusions. Yeats also wrote prose and drama and established himself as the spokesman of the Irish cause. His fame was greatly boosted mainly after he received the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1923. His life was marked by his many love stories, by his great interest in oriental mysticism and occultism as well as by political engagement since he served as an Irish senator for two terms. Today, although William Butler Yeats's contribution to literary modernism and to Irish nationalism remains incontestable. Here we publish one of his very fine plays that show just why his works are held in such esteem

Poets and dreamers: studies & translations from the Irish by Gregory( Book )

42 editions published between 1903 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 828 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lady (Augusta) Gregory (1852-1932) was a dramatist and folklorist. Along with the poet W. B. Yeats she was a driving force behind the Irish Literary Revival, and co-founded the Abbey Theatre, Dublin. Born Isabella Augusta Persse in County Galway, she belonged to the Anglo-Irish ascendancy, which was closely associated with colonial rule. She married Sir William Gregory in 1880. Her conversion to Irish cultural nationalism began after the death of her husband and was heavily influenced by her visit in 1892 to Inisheer, one of the Aran Islands, where she learnt Irish and the Hiberno-English dialect of Kiltartin. Poets and Dreamers was her first publication and contained translations of the Irish-language poet Anthony Raftery, folk-tales, and plays by the Gaelic scholar and future first President of Ireland, Douglas Hyde.
