Daniel Corkery's cultural criticism : selected writings by Daniel Corkery( Book )

8 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 147 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Daniel Corkery as cultural critic is a testimony to the sheer productivity of Corkery's eighty and more years. This book brings together oft-cited published material that is no longer easily available and unpublished manuscripts from the Corkery archive. The result is an edited collection that both reveals the central and recurring concerns of Corkery's critical writings and offers a unique insight into his wide-ranging cultural interests. Included in the collection are key chapters from The hidden Ireland and Synge and Anglo-Irish Literature, newspaper articles, literature reviews, a previously-unpublished essay and a radio broadcast. The book concludes with a selection of contemporary responses to Corkery's critical writings. This section of the book clearly indicates the strong reactions, both positive and negative, that his work originally elicited and allows the reader to situate Corkery within the intellectual debates of his day
Subversive law in Ireland, 1879-1920 : from 'unwritten law' to D́́́́́́́́́́́́́́́áil courts by Heather Laird( Book )

4 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 139 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Contributes to a neglected topic in Irish literary and cultural history--the modes of protest and cultural forms available to the subaltern classes under landlordism. Using the economic writings of figures like John Stuart Mill and George Campbell and such literary works as Emily Lawless's 'Hurrish, ' Heather Laird shows that the so-called unwritten "agrarian code" of popular justice, though often depicted as anarchic and pathological, was pro-social as opposed to anti-social, emanating from an alternative moral code whose very existence undermined the legitimacy of the colonial civil law. The book explores this clash of legal systems and the resulting crisis in law administration.--From publisher's description
Commemoration by Heather Laird( )

5 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 111 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book, written during Ireland's decade of centenaries, draws on the aims of the Síreacht series to re-imagine commemoration. A commemoration process that is shaped by a desire to re-invigorate the social imagination and encourage speculation on alternatives to current orthodoxies considers not only what happened in the past, but what else might conceivably have happened. By acknowledging the existence of historical alternatives at a given moment in time, we can access that moment's contingencies. These unrealised yet fully realisable past futures are especially numerous during periods of potent possibility; points in time when the future seems particularly open to being shaped by those living in the present. The book proposes ways that we can both make the roads untaken in history visible and 'remember' them. It links the untaken roads of the past to side-branching roads in the present: real possible alternatives to dominant ways of thinking and being, outlining commemorative practices that could connect these two sets of roads. The book while referring to history, literature, television drama and documentary, economics, politics, law and art is grounded in concepts and practices of land and property occupancy and usage. That said, the ideas that it explores are relevant to the broader set of struggles concerning collective welfare that impel the Síreacht series. In keeping with series's utopian-inflected subtitle, 'Longings for Another Ireland', the book proposes that a commemoration process which recognises that the past could have been other than it was and that it could have given rise to other possible futures can assist us in the difficult but necessary process of imagining our future as both different too and better than the here and now
