The written word has long been home to the hopes and fears, the laughter and dreams of the Irish people. Not surprisingly, poetry - the most lyrical of all arts of the written word - has a venerable history in Ireland. In fact, Irish history itself, so often written by the hands of others, reveals its true native accent within Irish verse.

Ireland: A

Overview

The written word has long been home to the hopes and fears, the laughter and dreams of the Irish people. Not surprisingly, poetry - the most lyrical of all arts of the written word - has a venerable history in Ireland. In fact, Irish history itself, so often written by the hands of others, reveals its true native accent within Irish verse.

Ireland: A Celebration in Verse presents the recurring themes of Irish poetry and culture through seventy memorable poems. The selection spans nearly a dozen centuries. More than a third of the poems were originally written in Irish and have been translated into English by some of Ireland's ablest poets, past and present: Douglas Hyde, Samuel Ferguson, Lady Gregory, Austin Clarke, Paul Muldoon, and others.
