Padraic Colum The Story of King Arthur and Other Celtic Heroes


Among the greatest storytellers of the world, the ancient Celts told tales that, after more than a thousand years, still bristle with life and excitement. Noted Irish folklorist Padraic Colum (1881–1972) preserved many of Ireland’s ancient traditions in collections featuring enchanting tales of old. This handsomely illustrated volume includes fifteen of these beguiling stories, including bold exploits at the Court of King Arthur. Filled with youthful heroes, lovely maidens, and menacing sorcerers and giants, the handsomely illustrated stories will enchant today’s audiences as much as they enthralled listeners centuries ago.

Padraic Colum The Children's Homer (The Adventures of Odysseus and the Tale of Troy)


Born and raised in a Longford, Ireland workhouse, Padraic Colum left at seventeen to become a clerk in the Irish Railway Clearing House in Dublin. This venture was short-lived, however, and with the success of a few poems and a play, «The Saxon Shillin',» he left in 1904 to pursue a career in writing. His success as a dramatist, poet, novelist, essayist, biographer, children's writer and editor, as well as his participation in the founding of the Abbey Theatre, made Colum a central figure in the Irish literary renaissance. Colum wrote «The Adventures of Odysseus and the Tale of Troy» in 1918 as a retelling of Homer's epic poems, «Iliad» and «Odyssey,» intended for younger readers. It recounts the perilous adventures of Odysseus on his journey back from the war in Troy, including his encounter with the horrible Cyclops, the duplicitous Sirens, and the evil Circe. One of Colum's many successful children's novels, these stories will be enjoyed as much today as they were nearly a century ago.

Gerald of Wales The History and Topography of Ireland


Gerald of Wales, or Giraldus Cambrensis, was a medieval clergyman and historian who served as the royal clerk and chaplain to King Henry II of England. Gerald of Wales was afforded the opportunity in 1185 to accompany the King's son John on his first expedition to Ireland. Because of those travels he would write his first of many works by penning the «Topographia Hibernica» or the «Topography of Ireland». The work is an account of the landscape and people of Ireland and was one the longest and most influential works on the country during the Middle Ages. Shortly after writing this work he would compose his «Expugnatio Hibernica» or the «Conquest of Ireland» in which he accounts King Henry's conquest of the country. For those interested in Irish History the «Topology» and the «Conquest», both contained in this volume, give an interesting perspective from one of the foremost medieval historians.

McCann Colum Transatlantic


In 1919 Emily Ehrlich watches as two young airmen, Alcock and Brown, emerge from the carnage of World War One to pilot the very first non-stop transatlantic flight from Newfoundland to the west of Ireland. In 1845 Frederick Douglass, a black American slave, lands in Ireland to champion ideas of democracy and freedom, only to find a famine unfurling at his feet. And in 1998 Senator George Mitchell criss-crosses the ocean in search of an elusive Irish peace. Stitching these stories intricately together, Colum McCann sets out to explore the fine line between what is real and what is imagined, and the tangled skein of connections that make up our lives.

Группа авторов Being New York, Being Irish


New York University's Glucksman Ireland House opened a quarter-century ago to foster the study of Ireland and Irish America, and since then has led and witnessed tremendous changes in Irish and Irish-American culture. Alice McDermott writes about her son's Irish awakening; Colum McCann's Joycean essay is a brilliant call to action in defence of immigrants and social justice; Colm Tóibín's first visit to New York coincided with the first St Patrick's Day parade led by a woman; Dan Barry reflects on Frank McCourt's Angela's Ashes ; and a new poem by Seamus Heaney written not long before his death. Through deeply personal essays that reflect on their own experience, research and art, some of the best-known Irish writers on both sides of the Atlantic commemorate the House's anniversary by examining what has changed, and what has not, in Irish and Irish-American culture, art, identity, and politics since 1993.
