Gerard Manley Hopkins by Gerard Manley Hopkins( Book )

1 edition published in 1986 in English and held by 883 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 504 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."

"A new translation of the stories of Giovanni Verga, the greatest Italian short-story writer since Boccaccio." "Born in 1840 into a well-to-do Sicilian family, in the 1870s Verga became an active observer and habitue of Milanese salon society, but eventually found in the everyday lives of Sicilian peasants the inspiration for his finest narratives. Love, adultery and honour are recurring themes in stories set against the scorched landscapes of the slopes of Mount Etna and the Plain of Catania."--Jacket
