Austin Clarke, 1896-1974a Critical Introduction by Maurice Harmon (Author)

£8.99

Product description

Austin Clarke 1896-1974; a Critical Introduction
After Yeats, Austin Clarke is Ireland's most most important poet. In this book Dr Maurice Harmon of University College, Dublin, a leading scholar and critic in the field of modern Irishliterature, provides the first comprehensive study of Clarke's entire work. Dr Harmon's aim and achievement, is to evaluate, interpret and clarify for the reader the work of this extraordinary poet, playwright, novelist and essayist.
An extensive introduction sets out the political, social and literary contexts of Clarke's life and the importance of post Tridentine catholicism in shaping his imagination. Part I details the poet's development from early epic mythologies, the poetry of Pilgrimage and major collection, Night and Morning. Clarke's fiction and drama are also examined.
Clarke's emergence as a new and significant modern poet, his political and social satires, his powerful autobiographical poems, his linguistic energy and comic imagination, his affirmation of a joyous, non-judgemental religion of sensuality and love, bring us to Part II to a final evaluation of Clarke's entire achievement
