5-0 out of 5 stars A near-model anthology
I use this book, together with Paul Muldoon's Contemporary Irish Poetry and Fallon/Mahon's Contemporary Irish Poetry as texts for Adult Education.Crotty's book has 47 poets and gives a short insightful introduction to every poet. It is a wide-ranging book, including 3 modernist poets, 5 poets who write in Irish--for which there are sensitive translations by Crotty himself as well as Muldoon and Heaney. Most space is given to Muldoon, Heaney, Kavanagh, MacNeice, Kinsella, Durcan, Clarke, O Riordáin, and Ní Dhomhnaill in that order. The poems are generally well chosen. Ciaran Carson is represented, and the other fine young poet in Irish Cathal O Searcaigh. There is the good humor of Durcan, Duhig and McDonald. My students feel warmly about the book, and are writing surprisingly good poems of their own as response to it. ... Read more

Book Description

At once praised and condemned by his contemporaries and by critics ever since for his highly complex poetic vision, William Butler Yeats remains one of the most important and controversial twentieth-century poets.In what has become a classic work of literary criticism, award-winning critic Harold Bloom breaks new ground with his radical interpretation of Yeats' relationship to the English Romantic tradition. Yeats tells the continuous story of the lifelong influence of Shelley, Blake, and the Romantic tradition upon Yeats' work.Through his analysis of the full spectrum of Yeats' poems and plays, Bloom offers a profound reinterpretation of poetic influence in general. ...

Book Description

With this collection, first published in 1975, Heaney located a myth which allowed him to articulate a vision of Ireland--its people, history, and landscape--and which gave his poems direction, cohesion, and cumulative power. In North, the Irish experience is refracted through images drawn from different parts of the Northern European experience, and the idea of the north allows the poet to contemplate the violence on his home ground in relation to memories of the Scandinavian and English invasions which have marked Irish history so indelibly.

4-0 out of 5 stars Mystic poems from the Celtic-Nordic Axis
These poems connect the twenty first century reader with the Celtic past of Ireland, in a unique way: through the experience of the marauding Vikings. Wonderful poems with a mythic edge. Heaney is fantastic.

Fans of Heaney's Beowulf translation will find a great introduction to his work here in this accessible group of poems.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great Poems
I don't know much about poetry, but as a fan of Irish culture, I decided to pick up this small collection. I was moved by the images. Heaney brought the past alive. I could picture the Vikings coming up the Shannon and storming Clen McNois and other monastries. Definately recommended! ... Read more

Publisher: St. Martin's Press
Sales Rank: 606937
US | Canada | United Kingdom | Germany | France | Japan

Book Description

As a young man, William Butler Yeats was deeply affected by the idea of romantic love, or, as he called it, "the old high way of love."Characteristically, much of his early poetry that which was written prior to 1910, is poetry that belongs to courtship.

When Yeats was twenty-three years old, he met and fell in love with the beautiful Irish nationalist, Maud Gonne. Although she repeatedly refused to marry Yeats, Maud would become the object of his passion and his poetry. The emotional power in many of Yeats' early poems is shaped by the one-sidedness of his affair with Maud, but the poems themselves remain hopeful and bitter-sweet, pure in their language and attitudes about love.

The forty-one poems collected in A Poet to his Beloved represent some of Yeats's most evocative and passionate early love poems. These versed are simple, lyrical, and often dreamy, and they speak knowingly of innocence and beauty, passion and desire, devotion and the fear of rejection.

5-0 out of 5 stars I keep it in the bathroom
This is a breathtaking overview of Irish poetry. Great history in some of the older ones. I could have wished for more of that, but then there wouldn't have been as much room for the masters. I keep this one in the bathroom so I can take in some bits and chunks when I have a minute. It's a classic! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great compilation
A great collection of poems - my copy is well-worn. The editor has done a fantastic job of selecting the poems, and I would gladly read more of her work. I would love to meet her. I recommend this to anyone with an interest in poetry or Ireland.

4-0 out of 5 stars A dash of all things Irish and (in-or-out of) love
Very nice compilation of Irish love poems... some heart-warming, some, ummm...., not. Sweet illustrations too. Has a poem by Seamus Heany, impressive for an independent book publishing house. I'd read more by that editor. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars A good traditional anthology
This is a good book to use in tandem with Muldoon's Faber Book of Contemporary Irish Poetry and Crotty's Modern Irish Poetry for the understanding of contemporary Irish poetry. It allocates its main space to Kinsella, Heaney, Montague, Mahon, Muldoon and Durcan, in that order. Some of the poets may hold the substantial space allotted to them because they were important two and three decades ago, but this anthology nonetheless sparkles in the selections it makes from these poets, and in the inclusion of Deane, Grennan, Mathews and Sirr. The editor Mahon has made an outstanding selection from his own work, and the book is a good introduction to the important, mischievous work of Michael Hartnett. As an anthology it has a unified and valid character all its own in the presentation of contemporary Irish poetry. ... Read more

Book Description

In this delightful anthology, Thomas Kinsella, a renowned poet and translator, offers new translations of a significant selection of poems from the early centuries to the present day, thus revealing some of the greatest riches of Irish verse.No one has displayed the Irish tradition--which includes the earliest vernacular poetry in Western Europe--to better advantage than Kinsella has in this magnificent collection.

Divided into three "Books," Book I opens with the earliest, pre-Christian poetry in Old Irish and ends in the fourteenth century with the first Irish poetry in the English language.Book II, ranging from the fifteenth to eighteenth centuries, presents the age of bardic poetry and the great poetry of its decline, the "new" poetry in Irish that followed it, and the era of Swift and Goldsmith.Book III covers the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, from the beggar-poet Raifteiri in Irish and his English-language contemporary Thomas Moore, to the work of a number of poets born around the time of Yeats' death. ...
