In this celebrated work -- widely considered to be one of the greatest in the Western canon -- Dante's literary hero Virgil guides him through Hell, showing him the inhabitants of each of its nine circles and examples of the divine justice meted out to them. Originally written in colloquial Italian, The Inferno was intended by Dante as a poem for the common reader. In his new translation, Ciaran Carson has constructed a version that is suffused with wit, anger and irreverent vigor. Carson, an award-winning Irish poet, accents his Inferno with vivid Hiberno-English idioms, drawing on the Irish poetic and balladmaking tradition to create rhymes that sparkle and stimulate. Carson's swift intelligence never diminishes the pathos of the original, however, and Dante's visions of Hell -- and his pity for some of the damned -- shine through undimmed. This is a truly original retelling of Dante's epic journey that will surprise and renew the twenty-first-century reader's faith in the art of translation. Remarkably inventive, Carson's Inferno is deserving of comparison with Seamus Heaney's Beowulf and Ted Hughes's Tales from Ovid+-+00702571364434ocn035587079book19960.27Carson, CiaranLast night's fun : in and out of time with Irish musicCriticism, interpretation, etcruthlessly unsentimental music.

They can sense colours and sounds more vividly; they can penetrate the surface of paintings; they can cross time. The narrator, his cousin and a strange Belgian friend know that their lives are ruled mysteriously by the great van Eyck painting, The Arnolfini Portrait, and they have travelled in dream like moments through the painting into other times. They discover that each moment is connected to every other. But in the strange world of Shamrock Tea, no story can be straightforward.

It is some time in the 1970s. They become lovers. For All We Know is their story, told in the recent past: a meditation on love, place, memory, loss and language, how people know each other, misunderstand each other, or translate each other, not to mention the events and circumstances which are beyond their control." "Gesturing towards a conventional sonnet sequence - the poems consist of fourteen lines, or multiples thereof, in lines of fourteen syllables - Ciaran Carson's novelistic book also references film noir, Cold War thriller, fairy story, and the art of the fugue. In its uncanny music, repercussions and reprises, its mysterious unfolding of what happened or what might have been in Paris and Dresden (or was it Berlin?), For All We Know is a sequence of poems like nothing you've ever read before."--BOOK JACKET+-+238581584637613ocn021249638book19890.73Carson, CiaranBelfast confettiPoetry+-+859548164531811ocn030606201book19930.76Carson, CiaranFirst language : poemsPoetry+-+351548164529611ocn017180191book19870.76Carson, CiaranThe Irish for noPoetry+-+247548164532426310ocn035570837book19960.76Carson, CiaranOpera et ceteraPoetry+-+31489770363242537ocn002566257book19760.70Carson, CiaranThe new estatePoetry20313ocn045100278book19990.56Carson, CiaranFishing for amber : a long storyFiction"Fishing for Amber weaves Irish fairy tales, Ovid's Metamorphoses and the history of the Dutch Golden Age into the form of a magical alphabet." "The universal theme is that of transmutation, of the power of art: of light captured on canvas, experience immortalized in narrative. Stories branch infinitely into other stories, each connecting, each fishing for the truth. The central image of amber, of light or creatures captured in it, transformed by it, is sustained throughout the book. Carson triumphs over the distinction between fact and fiction in the sheer pleasure he takes in telling stories."--BOOK JACKET+-+16282571362008ocn052257469book20030.81Carson, CiaranBreaking newsPoetry+-+06658158461952ocn047185374book20010.81Carson, CiaranCiaran Carson : selected poems+-+17558158461917ocn320806921book20080.84Carson, CiaranCollected poemsPoetryCiaran Carson's 'Collected Poems', published on the occasion of his 60th birthday, gathers work from eight collections+-+K09581584619010ocn040754605book19980.76Carson, CiaranThe twelfth of neverPoetry+-+10870870363241627ocn039838140book19980.90Carson, CiaranThe Alexandrine plan : versions of sonnets by Baudelaire, Mallarmé, and Rimbaud1606ocn061695761book20050.86Merriman, BrianThe midnight court : a new translation of "Cúirt an mheán oíche" by Brian MerrimanPoetryMaster poet, storyteller and translator Ciaran Carson has great fun with this eighteenth-century erotic masterpiece, which deals with the topic of repression, sexual and otherwise. The Midnight Court has been called one of the greatest comic works of literature, and certainly the greatest comic poem ever written in Ireland. --Seán Ó TuamaThe story is an aisling--a Gaelic literary genre, in which a poet wanders and meets a beautiful fairy woman who is ultimately identified as Ireland herself, prophesying the return of her power--but this is an aisling stood on its head. As Carson explains: Merriman subverted all that. His fairy woman is not beautiful, but a threatening monster. The vision that she discloses is not of a future paradise, but a present reality ... The protagonists of the 'Court, ' including 'Merriman' himself, are ghosts, summoned into being by language; they are figments of the imagination. In the 'Court' the language itself is continually interrogated and Merriman is the great illusionist, continually spiriting words into another dimension. --Wake Forest University Press+-+72380870363241526ocn501394789book20090.70Carson, CiaranThe pen friendFiction"'I write to try to see you as you were, or what you have become. You left no forwarding address: that was part of your intention. For when we wrote those letters to each other all those years ago, we wrote as much for ourselves as for each other.'" "More than twenty years after the end of their love affair, Gabriel receives a cryptic postcard from an old flame. It is the first of thirteen cards from her, each one provoking a series of reveries about their life and love in 1980s Belfast. The Pen Friend is, however, much more than a love story. As Gabriel teases out the significance of the cards, his reveries develop into richly textured meditations on writing, memory, spiritualism and surveillance." "The result is an intricate web of fact and fiction, a narrative that marries sharp historical insights with imaginative exuberance, a strange and wonderful novel that confirms Ciaran Carson as one of Ireland's most engaging and ingenious writers."--BOOK JACKET+-+30635910351497ocn612335872book20090.92Carson, CiaranOn the night watchNo further information has been provided for this title+-+15058158461258ocn040715577book19990.90Carson, CiaranThe ballad of HMS Belfast : a compendium of Belfast poemsPoetry+-+741828588532410666ocn053971578com20020.53Houen, AlexTerrorism and modern literature, from Joseph Conrad to Ciaran CarsonCriticism, interpretation, etc"Is terrorism's violence essentially symbolic? Does it impact on culture primarily through the media? What kinds of performative effect do the various discourses surrounding terrorism have? Such questions have not only become increasingly important in terrorism studies, they have also been concerns for many literary writers." "This book is the first extensive study of modern literature's engagement with terrorism. Ranging from the 1880s to the present, the terrorism examined is as diverse as the literary writings on it: chapters include discussions of Joseph Conrad's novels on Anarchism and Russian Nihilism; Wyndham Lewis's avant-garde responses to U.S. Syndicalism and militant Suffragettes; Ezra Pound's poetic entanglement with Segregationist violence; Walter Abish's fictions about West German urban guerrillas; and Seamus Heaney's and Ciaran Carson's poems on the 'Troubles' in Northern Ireland."--Jacket+-+36223634654205ocn039162315book19970.27Carson, CiaranThe star factoryBiographyBelfast is a city that seems eternally scarred by the jagged, confusing lines of its sectarian map, but Ciaran Carson remembers and invents the city in which he grew up as a fractured, haunted urban labyrinth.

These papers catalog Ormsby's literary career as a poet, an anthologist, and a long-term editor of The Honest Ulsterman. The collection focuses on two interconnected areas of Ormsby's literary life. On one hand, the papers highlight Ormsby's output as a poet, a writer about poetry, and an editor-anthologist. On the other hand, this collection is notable for its materials relating to The Honest Ulsterman and Ormsby's role as editor of this magazine, which played an important role in the late twentieth century literary culture of Northern Ireland. Apart from his writing poetry and critical prose and his magazine editing, Ormsby, as anthologist and literary editor, has produced seven anthologies or other edited volumes. Materials relating to the publication of these volumes are arranged in a distinct subseries of writing by Ormsby. Such materials include: bibliographical and biographical research materials, permissions, contents lists and indexes, drafts of introductions, and copies of primary documents. Correspondence with contributors, editors, or publishers is kept separately in the subseries for personal literary correspondence. Similarly, reviews and other printed matter relating to these texts are found in the subseries for printed material about Ormsby. In this collection's several correspondence subseries, writers of interest include Ciaran Carson, Peter Fallon, Seamus Heaney, John Hewitt, Kathleen Jamie, Edna and Michael Longley, Derek Mahon, Medbh McGuckian, Paul Muldoon, Tom Paulin, Carol Rumens, and James Simmons, among many others. Because of the magazine's importance, both for Ormsby and Northern Irish literary culture, The Honest Ulsterman materials constitute a separate and sizeable series, which includes correspondence, author files, manuscript submissions, publications, and printed material regarding The Honest Ulsterman. Manuscript and typescript drafts of poetry and prose sent to Ormsby are divided according to those submitted for magazine publication and those shared with the poet on a more personal basis. Because friends sent material both for personal reasons and for publication, the series of writings by others is relatively small compared to The Honest Ulsterman author files and magazine submissions subseries . Anything sent with an eye towards publication has been kept in The Honest Ulsterman series. Similarly, printed material regarding the magazine is arranged separately from other printed material relating to Ormsby and his work as poet and anthologist. Other important materials include worksheets by Norman Dugdale, Seamus Heaney, Michael Longley, Paul Muldoon, Bernard MacLaverty, and James Simmons from meetings of the Belfast Group in 1971-1972. Photographs of many of the personages whose work is represented in this collection are arranged in a separate series.

The papers document Muldoon's creative work since the 1960s, including poetry, television and radio scripts for the BBC, drama and music. Correspondence in the collection consists primarily of letters to Muldoon from others, with only a few copies of letters written by Muldoon. The correspondence documents Muldoon's relationships with other Irish poets such as Ciaran Carson, Seamus Heaney, Michael Longley and Derek Mahon. Writings by Muldoon include drafts, proofs and other materials relating to his work as a poet, translator, and lyricist, as well as various types of prose writing. Writings by others include works by other Irish poets, interviews with Muldoon, and essays and theses about Muldoon's work. Printed material consists of published writings by and about Muldoon, published writings by other authors, as well as some collected publications. Promotional material includes posters, flyers, brochures and other printed material publicizing and promoting Muldoon's work, poetry readings and other appearances. Business and personal papers consist primarily of publishing contracts, but also contain materials such as Muldoon's curriculum vitae, travel itineraries, appointment books and royalty statements. Photographs include portraits and snapshots of Muldoon, along with family members, friends and colleagues. Finally, the audiovisual material in the collection consists of recordings of performances of Muldoon's work, and a small number of interviews with Muldoon and reviews of Muldoon's poetry11ocn276358809mix1.00Foster, John WilsonJohn Wilson Foster papersCriticism, interpretation, etcThe collection consists of the papers of John Wilson Foster from 1973-2003.
