Classic Rebinding of Irish Poems
Classic leather rebinding of Irish Poems

Literary giants Yeats and Heaney are surrounded by a host of other poets – Patrick Kavanagh, Louis MacNeice, Derek Mahon, Eiléan Ní Chuilleanáin, Eavan Bolan, Ciaran Carson and Paul Muldoon, to name but a few – in this anthology of the best of Irish poetry. With its roots in the devotional verse of the early Christian church and the long lyric poems of the Irish bards, Irish poetry has a rich and robust tradition both of engagement and self-reflection. It has grappled long with politics, providing the most eloquent response to Ireland’s turbulent history; it has encompassed religion, so much a part of Ireland’s cultural heritage; it has soaked itself in the Irish landscape and Celtic myth and has given an original slant to everyday experience and affairs of the heart. Thematically organized and spanning many centuries, this selection also features a section on Gaelic poetry in translation.

Classic leather rebinding of James Joyce’s Ulysses

Often described as the twentieth century’s greatest novel, Ulysses, first published in 1922 and modelled on Homer’s Odyssey, is an account of one day in the life of Dublin, focusing on the humble Leopold Bloom and his sensuous wife, Molly. An earthy story, a virtuoso technical display and a literary revolution all rolled into one, Ulysses is one of the few books everyone has to read.

Classic Rebinding of Joyce Poems
Classic leather rebinding of Joyce Poems and a Play

James Joyce, though better known as a novelist, was also an accomplished poet. Chamber Music, his debut collection, fused the styles of the Celtic Revival with his own brand of playful irony and has inspired composers as diverse as Samuel Barber, Luciano Berio and Syd Barrett. His second collection, Pomes Penyeach, written between 1904 and 1924 sounds intimately autobiographical notes of passion and betrayal that resonate through the rest of his work. Other poems include the well-known ‘Ecce Puer’, written for his newborn grandson, and his fierce satires, ‘The Holy Office’ and ‘Gas from a Burner’.

Joyce’s only play, Exiles, was written in 1914-15. Influenced by Ibsen, whom Joyce greatly admired, it tells the story of writer Richard Rowan, and his partner Bertha, who must live in defiance of social convention in Dublin or return to exile in Rome. At the same time, it is a richly nuanced drama involving two love triangles and exploring Joycean themes of human freedom and dignity, sexual jealousy and guilt, love and friendship. Exiles is also a portrait of the artist, drawing on Joyce’s own complicated relationships – with Nora Barnacle, and with Ireland itself, which he was never to visit again – at a time when he was just embarking on his greatest novel, Ulysses.

Classic Rebinding of Poe Poems
Classic leather rebinding of Poe Poems

Edgar Allan Poe (1809–49) staked a large claim in that unmappable interior territory where poetry merges with dream and vision. His exquisitely musical poems provide us with a direct link to our unconscious life. Through his obsessions, and by virtue of his uncanny imaginative instincts, he anticipated many of the psychological contexts and concerns that inhabit – and indeed define – twentieth-century literature.

Daniel Albright’s edition of Yeats’s poems is the most scholarly available. Not only are the poems newly edited to present a close approximation to the ‘sacred book’ Yeats hoped to bequeath to the world, but they are accompanied by detailed explanatory notes and a long introductory essay which help make accessible the work of a poet who pushed imagination to its outer limits yet disciplined his images by confining them to strict lyrical forms.
