An Aran Reader

£8.99

Product description

The Aran Islands, three barren limestone rocks stretching across the mouth of Galway Bay on Ireland's west coast, are among the most finely-wrought land-masses in the western world. Their antiquity, diversity and cultural riches have made them a source of fascination for writers and romantics, naturalist and linguists, archaeologists, anthropologists and artists, provoking a variety of responses now inscribed upon Ireland's history and literature. This uniquely tender and memorious ground on the farthest edge of Europe - home to neolithic settlers, monks, soldiers and fishermen, has inspired generations of writers and commentators. Some of their spirit and lines are found in An Aran Reader.

A rich anthology about the mysterious west coast islands.

The book is in good condition, the top and bottom edges of the pages have a few small marks and the actual bottom edge of the book is very slightly bent in one place.

There is an inscription 'To a nice lady with love Rudy' on the first page.
