The living stream : literature & revisionism in Ireland by Edna Longley( Book )

13 editions published between 1992 and 1994 in English and held by 314 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In her introduction, which includes a hard-hitting critique of The Field Day Anthology, Edna Longley argues that it's time for Irish literary criticism to adopt the "revisionist" approach that characterises the writing of Irish history, which would mean paying more attention to religious factors, to literary relations with Britain, and to the cultural diversity that underlies creative diversity

Yeats and Modern Poetry by Edna Longley( Book )

11 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 239 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Scholars and critics commonly align W.B. Yeats with Ezra Pound, T.S. Eliot and the modernist movement at large. This incisive study from renowned poetry critic Edna Longley argues that Yeats's presence and influence in modern poetry have been sorely misunderstood. Longley disputes the value of modernist critical paradigms and suggests alternative perspectives for interpreting Yeats - perspectives based on his own criticism, and on how Ireland shaped both his criticism and his poetry. Close readings of particular poems focus on structure, demonstrating how radically Yeats's approach to poetic form differs from that of Pound and Eliot. Longley discusses other twentieth-century poets in relation to Yeats's insistence on tradition, and offers valuable insights into the work of Edward Thomas, Wallace Stevens, Wilfred Owen, Hugh MacDiarmid, W.H. Auden, Louis MacNeice, Geoffrey Hill, Philip Larkin and Ted Hughes. Her postscript addresses key issues in contemporary poetry by taking a fresh look at Yeats's enduring legacy.-from back cover
Modern Irish poetry : an anthology by Peter Mackay( Book )

8 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and held by 238 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"To compare modern Irish and Scottish poetry is to change the critical axis. It is to unsettle categories like the "English lyric" or "Anglo-American modernism". We might begin with two Irish-Scottish poetic encounters a century apart. The Rhymers' Club, which foregathered in 1890s London, laid crucial foundations for modern poetry in English, and established the prototype for later avant-garde coteries. The Club's make-up was strikingly "archipelagic": a term that will recur in this introduction. The Rhymers' Club marks a space where literary and cultural traditions from different parts of the British Isles came into play; where late nineteenth-century aestheticism met Celticism; and, more materially, where Irish, Scottish and Welsh poets competed for metropolitan attention - W.B. Yeats with particular success"--
Poetry & posterity by Edna Longley( Book )

11 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 235 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection of critical essays marks a move back from Irish culture and politics to poetry itself as the critic's central concern. It considers how poets are read and received at different times and in different contexts, by academics as well as by a wider readership, and from Irish and American viewpoints. -- Publisher description

Multi-culturalism : the view from the two Irelands by Edna Longley( Book )

8 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 164 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Two of Ireland's most outspoken critics and cultural commentators, Edna Longley from the North and Declan Kiberd from the South, put forward views on the constrasting directions in which the two societies on the island are moving. Professor Longley asks whether Northerners will increasingly identify with Northern Ireland as a shared point of reference. Will they develop a more flexible sense of their relations with the Republic and a post-devolution Britain? Professor Kiberd asks whether a newly prosperous and confident Republic is genuinely embracing multi-culturalism. Is it moving towards a post-nationalist society which commits its citizens to a truly pluralist vision? What does it mean to be Irish at the turn of the twenty-first century?"--Jacket
Incorrigibly plural : Louis MacNeice and his legacy by Fran Brearton( Book )

6 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 158 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Illuminating the work of a writer whose achievement and influence is increasingly recognized as central to modern poetry in English, this record is a celebration of the diversity and vitality of Louis MacNeice's writing. With contributions by fellow poets and critics-such as Neil Corcoran, Paul Farley, Leontia Flynn, Derek Mahon, Peter McDonald, and Clair Wills among others-it features a memoir by MacNeice's son, the late Dan MacNeice, and various biographical accounts. More than a retrospective work of criticism, this compilation also offers insight into MacNeice's complex political awareness
