This anthology of Irish verse and prose is compiled by the Irish writer Molly Keane and her daughter Sally Phipps. Although born into diverse times, their views of Ireland often overlap, sometimes take on complementary shades of difference. The book uses a powerful love of Ireland and its people, with work by Swift, Joyce, Synge, O'Connor, Kinsella, Beckett, O'Faolain, Heaney, Campbell and McGuckian among others. Subjects range from God, exile, love and death to fairies, horse-racing, wit and whiskey. Molly Keane, the distinguished novelist, describes her life in Ireland as a long love affair. Here she has collected the very best in Irish verse and prose, both the famous and the less well known. Whether it is Elizabeth Bowen on the country house, Trollope on hospitality, musings on the magical colours of the wind, or a recipe for moss pudding, these pieces capture the romantic, elusive Irish character, reflect the richness of the culture and paint a picture of ‘the struggle and the glory’ of life in Ireland throughout history. Illustrated with Bob O’Cathail’s bold and beautiful linocuts, this classic anthology is a deeply personal and moving tribute to a great country. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. xxi + 232.
