Wilde the Irishman by Jerusha Hull McCormack( Book )

9 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 761 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this vigorous study, seventeen leading Irish artists, critics, and cultural commentators explore the neglected theme of Wilde's Irishness."--Jacket
Grieving : a beginner's guide by Jerusha Hull McCormack( Book )

7 editions published between 2005 and 2015 in English and held by 534 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

McCormack writes straight from the heart in simple language infused with a spirituality that is never preachy or pushy. She covers so much ground in such a little book that the reader could devour it quickly in hours or spend weeks reading it slowly, savoring each bit of wisdom. People suffering from loss will especially appreciate the counterpoint she provides to all the well-meaning but insensitive "churchy" things Christians tend to say to people who are grieving ("it's God's will," or "it's all for the best"). But more importantly, McCormack includes a chapter of "Guidelines for Spirit Guardians," offering advice to those who accompany grieving people so they can be fully present and helpful. Anyone who is grieving or anyone who knows a grieving person will find hope and support in this small book. (Publishers Weekly)
The man who was Dorian Gray by Jerusha Hull McCormack( Book )

9 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 434 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Everyone knows The Picture of Dorian Gray, but few know that "Dorian Gray" actually existed. This is his story. In this biography, Jerusha Hull McCormack, noted expert on Oscar Wilde and his circle, tells the story of John Gray, a working-class boy who had a passionate friendship with Oscar Wilde and became known as the reputed model for the character of Dorian Gray. McCormack traces Gray's life from decadent poet to Roman Catholic priest, exploring his changing relationship with Wilde and with his lifelong companion, Andre Raffalovich. Gray's life provides us with fascinating insight into fin-de-siecle literary society and the emerging gay culture of the period."--Jacket
John Gray : poet, dandy, and priest by Jerusha Hull McCormack( Book )

10 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 319 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

John Gray was among the "tragic generation" of English decadent artists of the 1890s and the reputed model for the hero in Oscar Wilde's novel The Picture of Dorian Gray. Though John Gray is little known today, the story of his transformation from working-class laborer to avent-garde poet to patrician priest is fascinating in its own right and serves as a window into the world of such luminaries as Wilde, W. B. Yeats, Ernest Dowson, Lionel Johnson, Arthur Symons, and Aubrey Beardsley. Jerusha McCormack's lively critical biography draws upon unpublished journals and letters, extensive interviews, and autobiographical elements in Gray's poetry and prose to tell his complete story for the first time. -- from dust jacket
Thinking through China by Jerusha Hull McCormack( Book )

8 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 308 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This innovative book introduces China on its own terms by explaining ten key concepts that frame the way most Chinese people think about the world. Posing four questions that Westerners routinely ask abut China, the authors respond using these ten Chinese key words. Not surprisingly, the answers differ in startling ways from standard Western responses. Creating a cultural cartography through both text and image, the authors provide readers with a vivid sense of what is uniquely Chinese about China."--Back cover
The selected prose of John Gray by John Gray( Book )

5 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 171 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Publication of Ian Fletcher's The Poems of John Gray (1988) was welcomed by reviewers in the U.S. and England. Now ELT Press offers a companion volume, The Selected Prose of John Gray. It complements the poetry by printing essays and short stories chosen from different periods of Gray's life--some selections previously unpublished, others having appeared only in limited periodical circulation. This new book adds to our understanding of Gray and topics relevant to the era. Professor McCormack explains the importance of the prose in her introduction: Gray has a significance for his time as a writer who has made the transition from the mannered decadence of "The Modern Actor" to the cryptic pre-modernist narrative of Park. As such, his work helps us reconstruct our own past: in particular, it requires us to acknowledge that abyss which lies between the late Victorian and the years after the Great War. As one who survived, not only personally but as a writer, Gray allows us to speculate on the strategies by which he sought to bridge that chasm. And in so doing, John Gray's work may provide an example of how on the edge of greater chasms, we may still presume to tell stories and to feel, in telling them, that they are permitted to tell us something about our experience--and ourselves. Professor McCormack traces the development of Gray's life and writings in her introductory essay. She prefaces each selection with a useful headnote. Her extensive notes to the prose clarify topical allusions and make Gray's work accessible to a wide audience

Yeats's mask by Margaret Mills Harper( )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Yeats's Mask, Yeats Annual No. 19 is a special issue in this renowned research-level series. Fashionable in the age of Wilde, the Mask changes shape until it emerges as Mask in the system of A Vision. Chronologically tracing the concept through Yeats's plays and those poems written as 'texts for exposition' of his occult thought which flowers in A Vision itself (1925 and 1937), the volume also spotlights 'The Mask before The Mask' numerous plays including Cathleen Ni-Houlihan, The King's Threshold, Calvary, The Words upon the Window-pane, A Full Moon in March and The Death of Cuchulain. There are excurses into studies of Yeats's friendship with the Oxford don and cleric, William Force Stead, his radio broadcasts, the Chinese contexts for his writing of 'Lapis Lazuli'. His self-renewal after The Oxford Book of Modern Verse, and the key occult epistolary exchange 'Leo Africanus', edited from MSS by Steve L. Adams and George Mills Harper, is republished from the elusive Yeats Annual No. 1 (1982). The essays are by David Bradshaw, Michael Cade-Stewart, Aisling Carlin, Warwick Gould, Margaret Mills Harper, Pierre Longuenesse, Jerusha McCormack, Neil Mann, Emilie Morin, Elizabeth Müller and Alexandra Poulain, with shorter notes by Philip Bishop and Colin Smythe considering Yeats's quatrain upon remaking himself and the pirate editions of The Land of Heart's Desire. Ten reviews focus on various volumes of the Cornell Yeats MSS Series, his correspondence with George Yeats, and numerous critical studies
