A master storyteller explores a signature theme Over the course of his long and distinguished career, Frank O'Connor wrote many stories about priests. Some of his most iconic characters are men of the cloth, and few writers have portrayed the unique demands of the priesthood with as much empathy, honesty, and wit. This collection, edited and introduced by his widow, Harriet O'Donovan Sheehy, brings together the best of O'Connor's short fiction on the subject. From An Act of Charity, the ironically titled tale of church efforts to cover up a curate's suicide, to The Sentry, an exquisite blend of drama and satire sparked by the British army's invasion of a priest's onion patch, these sixteen stories capture the full range of pressures visited on the Irish clergy. Peasants is a lesson in what happens when a man of God places law and order above compassion, while Achilles Heel reveals that even a bishop can be rendered powerless by his housekeeper. The Frying-pan and The Wreath are sad and lovely portraits of priests caught between their vows of celibacy and their natural desire for human connection. In the rituals and contradictions of the priesthood, Frank O'Connor found one of his greatest motifs. The Collar showcases an artist at the peak of his powers and shines a brilliant light on a fascinating world too often hidden in shadow and sentiment

The midnight court, and other poems by Brian Merriman( )

1 edition published in 1945 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A bawdy and boisterous poem of Ireland, translated by one of its most distinguished literary sons As a teacher and translator of Irish verse, Frank O'Connor brought to the world's attention many fine poems from his native land, few as enduring--and none as controversial--as Brian Merriman's The Midnight Court. An eighteenth-century masterpiece widely recognized as the greatest comic poem in Irish literature, The Midnight Court is a hilarious and insightful take on the battle of the sexes. In the court of a fairy queen, the men and women of Ireland air their grievances with one another. The competing lists of complaints are as long as they are uproarious, and when the queen rules in favor of the women, all young Irish bachelors are doomed to a terrible fate: marriage. The Midnight Court has now taken its rightful place in the Irish literary canon, but when O'Connor's English translation was first published in 1945, the Irish government banned it as obscene. In a delicious irony that might have been lifted from one of O'Connor's short stories, the Gaelic original met with no censure. Here, as it first appeared, is Frank O'Connor's faithful, funny, and eloquent translation of one of the most important works in Irish literature
