The Aran Islands by J. M Synge( Book )

1 edition published in 1907 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Located off the west coast of Ireland, the Aran Islands were considered the country's pure, uncorrupted heart, the repository of its ancient language, culture, and spiritual values. John Millington Synge visited the Aran Islands during the years 1898 to 1901, gathering folklore and anecdotes that he would later use in his plays. His evocative travelogue is a peek at a disappearing way of life, capturing the ancient ways of the island, its breathtaking loveliness, and the charms of the residents and their customs

Mediæval Latin lyrics by Helen Waddell( Book )

1 edition published in 1947 in Latin and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Writing excitedly to her sister Meg in 1929, Helen Waddell quotes an early review of Mediaeval Latin Lyrics: 'Miss Waddell has kept her promise well: she promised a volume of translations from those fascinating "vagantes". Some indeed are among the loveliest in any literature; and Miss Waddell has not dulled their brightness. She has come to them not merely with scholarship and literary tact, but with a soul attuned to the thought and feeling and the very idiom of another day. She has the most important of the translator's qualifications - a perfect empathy with her material.'" "Through the marvellous empathy this reviewer unerringly describes, she unlocked some of the secrets and literary achievements of the Middle Ages for the scholar and the general reader alike. The vagantes, to whom the reviewer refers, are also the subject of her earlier book, The Wandering Scholars (1927) which similarly won golden opinions. These two books and her novel Peter Abelard (1933) made her the most famous medievalist of her generation." "And this was no passion fashion. Helen Waddell's books, particularly this one, have informed and inspired generations of medievalists. Mediaeval Latin Lyrics is an authoritative and delightful guide to a period of European civilization and literature, when Latin was still a vibrant means of communication throughout the western world."--BOOK JACKET
