Hail and Farewell ! - Vol 1 Signed Limited Edition

£14.99

Product description

Hail and Farewell, George Moore’s reminiscences about Ireland and himself and his friends give the effect of a novel in which the characters are real people, W. B. Yeats, Lady Gregory, Edward Martyn, and others. He returns to Ireland after many years absence impressed with the belief that he has a mission to restore the ancient glory of Ireland by reviving the Irish language. One reason for leaving England is his hatred for the Boer war. ‘Ave,’ the first volume of this trilogy of confidences, tells of the beginnings of the Irish Literary Theatre with plays by Yeats and Edward Martyn. His friend, Martyn, he considers “as typical of Ireland as Sancho Panza is of Spain. In the book he seems to me to set forth not only the Irish attitude of mind towards religious problems, he seems to reflect the Irish landscape, the Catholic landscape.

Signed by the Author - This is No. 421. Printed from handset type on Van Gelder hand-made paper, is limited to seven hundred and eighty sets, of which seven hundred and fifty are for sale.

Good condition with dust cover.
