About this title

Synopsis:

We Irish: Essays on Irish Literature and Society (Denis Donoghue)

From Library Journal:

Of the 29 essays, lectures, and book reviews gathered here, 3 are new; the rest first appeared elsewhere, mainly in periodicals. Yeats and Joyce occupy the first half of the volume; the remaining pieces discuss Irish politics and culture, including a range of 20th-century literary figures: Beckett, O'Casey, Synge, O'Connor, O'Faolain, Clarke, Heaney, and others. Donoghue examines the way these writers are both burdened and liberated by images of their country's turbulent past. His insights are provocative and resonant, his style engaging. He is especially skillful as a reviewer, ranging widely over his subjects without slighting the book at hand. Recommended for modern literature collections. Michael Hennessy, English Dept.
