James Clarence Mangan was born in Dublin just before Robert Emmet’s failed rebellion in 1803, and died in destitution in 1849, as the Great Famine drew to a close. W.B. Yeats considered Mangan one of the best Irish poets, along with Thomas Davis and Samuel Ferguson, claiming, “To the soul of Clarence Mangan was tied the burning ribbon of Genius.” James Joyce wrote two essays on Mangan, and also used his name in his works.
