Ireland's Literary Renaissance. Dublin: Maunsel, 1916. First edition. Pages xi, 415.  Large 8vo. Good copy in buckram.  The generation which succeeded the Anglicised Irish writers of the 18th century was the first conscious expression of national feeling since the passing of Gaelic as a literary medium.  This book gives an account of the first 30 years of this period, known as the Celtic Renaissance.  Previous to this Irish literature was associated chiefly with the stage Irishisms of Charles Lever, and the fierce political nationalism of the patriot poets of "The Nation."
