Women's Life Writing and Early Modern Ireland
Women's Life Writing and Early Modern Ireland provides an original perspective on both new and familiar texts in this first critical collection to focus on seventeenth-century women's life writing in a specifically Irish context. By shifting the focus away from England-even though many of these writers would have identified themselves as English-and making Ireland and Irishness the focus of their essays, the contributors resituate women's narratives in a powerful and revealing landscape. This volume addresses a range of genres, from letters to book marginalia, and a number of different women, from now-canonical life writers such as Mary Rich and Ann Fanshawe to far less familiar figures such as Eliza Blennerhassett and the correspondents and supplicants of William King, archbishop of Dublin. The writings of the Boyle sisters and the Duchess of Ormonde-women from the two most important families in seventeenth-century Ireland-also receive a thorough analysis. These innovative and nuanced scholarly considerations of the powerful influence of Ireland on these writers' construction of self, provide fresh, illuminating insights into both their writing and their broader cultural context.

Selected Poems
The first bilingual volume of poems by leading Irish twentieth-century poet Sean O Riordain In the mid-twentieth century, a new generation of poets writing in Irish emerged, led by the young Sean O Riordain, among others. O Riordain's work has stood the test of time well, and he continues to engage today's Irish readers and writers. This well-rounded selection of poems brings most of O Riordain's works to English-language readers for the first time. The poems appear in their original Irish alongside English translations by some of Ireland's leading poets. Also included for the first time in English is O Riordain's essay What Is Poetry?, considered an extraordinary touchstone of critical insight for poets and literary commentators. The volume reflects O Riordain's seven main concerns: poetry and its place in the artist's life; the plural self; the relationship between the individual and society; gender relations; the nature of animals; Ireland, its language and culture; and mortality.

Sacred Stone, Sacred Water: Women Writers and Artists Encounter Ireland
SACRED STONE, SACRED WATER is an elegant and intimate collection of writing, art, and photography evoking Ireland's wild beauty and deep soul through the work of 14 American women writers and artists at some of the island's most eminent sacred sites. Their journey produced exquisite poetry, photographs, drawings, and essays from visits to three renowned parts of Ireland. They explored world-famous Newgrange and ancient monastic sites in the Boyne Valley, and experienced the rising sun enter the 5,000-year-old passage mound at Lough Crew. In the scenic southwest, they traveled the world-renowned Healy Pass and the Ring of Beara, and were immersed in the exquisite Irish landscape through sun, wind, rain, rainbows, mists. They completed their journey with an immersion of the spiritual legacy of the goddess/saint Brigit, at her ancient monastic site, sacred wells, and Solas Bhride in Kildare. The contributors include award-winning writers, poets, photographers and artists, with backgrounds as medical doctors, healers, psychotherapists, musicians, shamans, teachers, social workers, and international women's activists. They include: Carolyn Brigit Flynn, Janis O'Driscoll, Nora Jamieson, Linda Serrato, June BlueSpruce, Judy Tsafrir, Anne Fitzgerald, Jean Mahoney, Jennifer Comeau, Suzanne Daub, Sandy Dempsey, Sarojani Rohan, Jessice Webb, and Ursi Barshi. Contributors are from California, Washington, Oregon, Maine, Pennsylvania, Connecticut and Massachusetts.

William Blake: Selected Poems
'To see a World in a Grain of Sand 'And a Heaven in a Wild Flower Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand And Eternity in an hour' William Blake wrote some of the most moving and memorable verse in the English language. Deeply committed to visionary and imaginative experience, yet also fiercely engaged with the turbulent politics of his era, he is now recognised as a major contributor to the Romantic Movement. This edition presents Blake's poems in their literary categories and genres to which they belong: his much-loved lyrics, ballads, comic and satirical verse, descriptive and discursive poems, verse epistles, and, finally, his remarkable 'prophetic' poems, including the whole of his two diffuse epics, Milton and Jerusalem. Blake's poetry is intellectually challenging as well as formally inventive, and this edition has a substantial critical introduction which places his ideas in the contemporary context of the Enlightenment and the artistic reaction against its key assumptions.

Evelyn Waugh
Everyone knows how funny Evelyn Waugh is. One of his finest comic creations was his own increasingly rebarbative public persona - a self-confessed `front of pomposity mitigated by indiscretion, that was as hard, bright and antiquated as a cuirass'. No wonder new biographies of Waugh are popular. The life and work cannot be separated. Gathered productively at the writer's desk are the chaotic and often bizarre details of Waugh's own life, what he called the `adroit jigsaw' of his unobtrusively elegant aesthetic structures, and his moral coherence. This study shows how Waugh transformed his own experiences into painfully comic, brilliantly constructed novels. They are works, in his own words, of `elegance and variety of contrivance'. Ann Pasternak Slater has written an ingenious and engaging study of the relationship between Waugh's life and work, between his sharp moral vision and Dionysiac comic genius. She focuses on Waugh's entire fictional oeuvre in a book notable for its intelligent sympathy.
