Gerard Manley Hopkins by Gerard Manley Hopkins( Book )

1 edition published in 1986 in English and held by 875 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Between the end of his study of theology in 1877 and the respite of his tertianship in 1881 he held seven different posts up and down the country from London and Oxford to Liverpool and Glasgow. The final five years of his life were spent in Ireland as Professor of Greek and Latin Literature in the newly formed Catholic University College, Dublin. Here he was beset by overwork, distress at Irish hatred of England, and most of all, despite writing a number of poems now considered among his very best, by the growing conviction that he could not accomplish any literary work of recognized value. He died of typhoid in June 1889

Celtic revivals : essays in modern Irish literature, 1880-1980 by Seamus Deane( Book )

1 edition published in 1985 in English and held by 505 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Written over the past decade by one of Ireland's leading literary critics, these brilliant and erudite essays examine the close connection between literature and politics in Ireland. The evidence is ambiguous and complex but Seamus Deane sifts it with exceptional analytic clarity. He begins by locatiing the roots of modern Irish literature in the eighteenth- and nineteenth-century Celtic revivals as perceived by two commentators, Burke and Arnold. We are then shown the differing attitudes of Yeats, Joyce, Synge, and O'Casey. Professor Deane then considers the bequest of these writers to the modern generation, from Beckett to Seamus Heaney. A more recent third literary revival coincided with the return of the Irish political crisis in Northern Ireland-a crisis which confronted writers as various as Thomas Kinsella, John Montague, Brian Friel and Derek Mahon, demanding that they should come to terms with it in their different ways. All the writers discussed are seen first as individuals, then as exemplars of a common fate with its own peculiar risks, burdens and responsibilities."

For Lancelot Andrewes : essays on style and order by T. S Eliot( Book )

1 edition published in 1928 in English and held by 246 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is Mr Eliot's first volume of collected essays since his Homage to John Dryden (1924), and he considers it his most important prose book since The sacred wood (1920). For Lancelot Andrewes consists of seven essays which are selected from Mr Eliot's work of the last two or three years, and which he believes show some consistency. The subjects cover a wide range of literature, theology and philosophy; but taken together they have a unity of their own."--Jacket
