Oxford University Press, 1994 - 430 sayfa. wrote Henry Green, & no odder than the world outside, only more concentrated.

"Ireland! Ireland! Ireland! The word falls on the ear with the gentle persistence of rain on the shores of Kerry," said Honor Tracy. "The Irishman," said Robert Lynd, "is one of the world's greatest puzzles." Just what is the true essence of Ireland? And who, exactly, are the "We Irish," as described by W.B. Yeats? The Oxford Book of Ireland is a unique anthology of writing that attempts to finally strike at the heart of this compelling country and its people, through the words of the Irish themselves. Included here are the poems, essays, and excerpts from the fiction of writers such as Samuel Beckett, Elizabeth Bowen, Seamus Heaney, James Joyce, Patrick Kavanagh, Louis MacNeice, Frank O'Connor, Honor Tracy, William Trevor, and W.B. Yeats. Arranged according to theme, the emphasis of this volume falls on geography, social history, custom, and personal observation. These great figures lament over the loss of the Gaelic language, ponder the splendor of endless Irish skies, contemplate the frenetic urbanity of Dublin, and revel in the invigorating wit and charm of their people. From the beauty of Celtic twilights to the drive towards insurgency, from the alcoholic animation to the passion of the Catholic region no country has fostered as much analysis and self-scrutiny as Ireland. Riveting, illuminating, and even exasperating, The Oxford Book of Ireland is a stimulating collection of the greatest Irish writers reflecting upon their mysterious and beloved homeland. Anyone bewitched by the land of Eire will delight in this spirited anthology.

What a splendid book.I am a native of Northern Ireland, and have immersed myself for many years in Irish history, culture, politics, and, to a lesser degree, literature, and was surprised by the strength of this collection...everything from landscape, religion, history, to the 'Troubles' and more modern days. For anyone who simply wants to know more about Ireland and understand its ways, without traipsing through the myriad books on culture, history and the rest,this is the only book you need. Insightful, funny, moving, informative, it draws on a well of wonderful writing. Thank you...and well done...Patricia Craig.
