Irish poetry : an interpretive anthology from before Swift to Yeats and after

by W. J. McCormack

Paper Book, 2000




New York : New York University Press, 2000.


"In this avowedly interpretive anthology of Irish verse, W. J. Mc Cormack traces through several centuries a creativity of contradiction, which finds poets productively at odds with their forebears, their contemporaries - even with themselves." "This new anthology brings together the best in Irish poetry to reveal a broad yet sharply focused tradition of diversity and dissidence. No inert golden treasury, W. J. Mc Cormack's compelling collection will provoke a wide-ranging reconsideration of one of the world's richest literatures."--BOOK JACKET.
