Shearsman Books - Niamh O'Mahony - Essays on the Poetry of Trevor Joyce | Poetry | Scoop.it
Published 2015. Paperback, 242pp, 9 x 6ins.

ISBN 9781848613362 [Download a sample PDF from this book here.]

 


Essays on the Poetry of Trevor Joyce is the first collection of critical responses to an Irish poet whose writing consistently challenges received ideas of Irish poetry. 

     The contributions that make up this collection span Joyce's writing career, from Sole Glum Trek (1967) to Rome's Wreck (2014), and are written by literary critics, poets, and publishers. These essays illuminate Joyce's poetry, aligning careful reading with insightful analysis to reveal Joyce as one of Ireland's most innovative and creative living poets.    

 

Contributors to this volume include: Lucy Collins, Eric Falci, Fergal Gaynor, John Goodby, Fanny Howe, David Lloyd, Peter Manson, Niamh O'Mahony, Marthine Satris, Geoffrey Squires, Keith Tuma and Jeffrey Twitchell Waas.

Professor Katharine Worth: Theatre scholar whose long friendship with Samuel Beckett illuminated her work in theory and practice

Professor Katharine Worth: Theatre scholar whose long friendship with Samuel Beckett illuminated her work in theory and practice | Poetry | Scoop.it
Katharine Worth was a leading theatre scholar who worked closely with Samuel Beckett. Her friendship with Beckett, which lasted many years, enabled her to appreciate and emphasise, in her scholarship as well as her theatre practice, a rather more relaxed Beckett than the bleak, curmudgeonly writer of literary myth.

If not for WB Yeats, Ireland might have been an island of saints and scientists

If not for WB Yeats, Ireland might have been an island of saints and scientists | Poetry | Scoop.it
Perhaps if science hadn’t been knocked aside by the Celtic Revival, we might have had a more science-focused start to the new state

Via Gerard Beirne
Hugh McFadden's insight:

As for me, I give thanks that it was literature, not science, that won that particular contest partly due to the work of Yeats (and Joyce and Synge and O'Casey). We have too much shallow secular 'rationalism' and too much of a 'blind faith' in science (which has given us all the nuclear nightmare as well as global warming and climate change, not to mention class monetary materialism) ...

#jazz #peace ▶ #BobBelden: A Message to the People of #Iran -#JazzVideoGuy - 3:05 - YouTube

Bob Belden has a message to the people of Iran: Peace and Love. The Jazz musician was the one of the first Americans to play in Tehran on February 20, 2015 at a music festival and he met The Real People of Iran. At his concert, he had an opportunity to speak to audience directly, perhaps the first time many Iranians have actually to peace loving Americans. Iran, officially the Islamic Republic of Iran, is not known to currently possess weapons of mass destruction (WMD) and has signed treaties repudiating the possession of weapons of mass destruction including the Biological Weapons Convention, the Chemical Weapons Convention,and the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT).
