Reviews and Essays of Austin Clarke

£14.99

Product description

Hardcover with green boards.
Published by Colin Smythe in the Irish Literary Studies series, number 40.
First edition, 1995. Edited by Gregory A Schirmer.

Austin Clarke (1896-1974)  is widely regarded as one of 20th-century Ireland's most important poets. In this selection of nearly fifty essays and reviews written over Clarke's long career, he demonstrates that he is an astute and provocative literary critic as well. Having grown up in Dublin when the excitement of the Irish Literary Revival was still running high, Clarke knew many of the principal figures of that movement personally, and his readings of Yeats, Joyce, Synge, O'Casey, Lady Gregory, George Moore, and others enjoy the advantages of an insider's point of view.

Hardback with dust jacket. The jacket is a little faded around the spine, and there are some marginal notes in the introduction to the book. The rest of the text is clean, and the book is otherwise in very good condition.
