The most comprehensive anthology of Irish writing ever published. Over 4,000 pages provide a commanding view of the various traditions of writing from 550 A.D. to the late 20th century, in Irish, English, Latin and Norman-French, that have helped to nurture one of the most distinctive literatures in the world. Two further volumes were published in 2003 featuring Irish Women’s Writing and Traditions. Nice association copy.
