Item Description: Scribner Book Company February 1990, 1990. Hardcover. Book Condition: Used - Very Good. 'Prefaces and Introductions,' Volume VI of 'The Collected Works of W.B. Yeats,' brings together for the first time thirty-two introductions by Yeats to the works of such literary greats as William Blake, J.M. Synge, Lady Gregory, Oscar Wilde, Oliver St. John Gogarty, Lionel Johnson, and Rabindranath Tagore. The introductions, which span the Nobel laureate's entire career, reflect the broad reach of Yeats's literary and cultural interests. Writing of fairies, ghosts, and witches in his introduction to 'Fairy and Folk Tales of the Irish Peasantr'y, Yeats discovers that they were still extant in Ireland, at least in 1888, 'giving gifts to the kindly, and plaguing the surly.' In his preface to Stories from Carleton he tells of that sweetest ginger of Gaelic tunes, Mary Carleton, who was once asked to sing the air 'The Red-haired Man's Wife' and replied: 'I will sing for you, but the English words and the air are like a quarreling man and wife. The Irish melts into the tune: the English does not.' And in distinguishing the Irish from the English poets of his day in 'A Treasury of Irish Poetry in the English Tongue,' Yeats remarks: 'Contemporary Irish poets believe in spiritual life, invisible and troubling, and express their belief in their poetry. Contemporary English poets are interested in the glory, the order, the passion or the pleasure of the world.' Always insightful and often charming, 'Prefaces and Introductions' reveals the breadth of Yeats's talent as essayist, critic, folklorist, and raconteur. Arranged together for the first time, thirty-two introductions by W. B. Yeats to the works of such literary greats as William Blake, J.M. Synge, Lady Gregory, Oscar Wilde and more. Very nice clean, tight copy free of any marks. Bookseller Inventory # 201238

Tyrone on February 20, 1794. His father was a small farmer, the father of fourteen children, of whom William was the youngest. After getting some education, first from a hedge schoolmaster, and then from Dr. Keenan of Glasslough, Carleton set out for Dublin and obtained a tutorship. In 1830 he collected a number of sketches, and these were published under the title of Traits and Stories of the Irish Peasantry, and at once enjoyed considerable popularity. In 1834 came Tales of Ireland, and from that time forward till his death Carleton produced with great industry numerous short stories and novels, though none of his work after 1848 is worthy of his reputation. The Black Prophet was published in 1847, and Carleton believed rightly that it was his best work. It was written in a season of unparalleled scarcity and destitution, and the pictures and scenes represented were those which he himself witnessed in 1817 and 1822. Many of Carletons novels have been translated into French, German, and Italian, and they will always stand for faithful and powerful pictures of Irish life and character. Carleton died in Dublin on January 30, 1869. For more eBooks visit www. kartindo. com This item ships from La Vergne,TN. Paperback. Bookseller Inventory # 9781494795054

Item Description: Mercier Press, Cork, 1972. Paperback. Book Condition: Near Fine. First Thus. William Carleton was born in Prillisk, Co Tyrone, in 1794 to small farmers, and was one of fourteen children. His father was fluent in Irish and English and was an accomplished story-teller, with, according to his son, an astonishing memory. His mother, Mary Kelly, was an accomplished singer in Irish, and was famous at wakes, where she acted as a keener. William was also a fluent Irish speaker. The family, already poor, were to experience even more greatly reduced circumstances, and were evicted in 1813. He married Jane Anderson in 1822. After a stop-start education, he came across the classic novel Gil Blas, which inspired him to write, and in his thirties, he walked to Dublin, much like his admirer Patrick Kavanagh, and after failing to get employment on many occasions, received a lucky break when he was asked to write a sketch about Lough Derg, which he knew. The sketch was published by its editor, the Reverend Caesar Otway, in The Christian Examiner and Church of Ireland Gazette in 1828. Within two years he had published thirty sketches in the same periodical, and they were collected as Traits and Stories of the Irish Peasantry (Dublin, William Curry, 5 volumes in two series, 1830-1833), which went through more than fifty editions before Carleton’s death. This was followed by Tales of Ireland (Dublin, Duffy Parlour Library of Ireland, 1833). His other books include Fardorougha the Miser, or the Convicts of Lisnamona (Dublin University Magazine, 1837-1838); Valentine McClutchy, the Irish Agent, or Chronicles of the Castle Cumber Property (3 volumes, 1845); The Black Prophet, a Tale of the Famine (Dublin University Magazine, 1846); The Emigrants of Ahadarra (1847); Willy Reilly and his dear Colleen Bawn (London, The Independent, 1850); and The Tithe Proctor (1849). His later stories include The Squanders of Castle Squander (1852). In 1848 a pension of £200 a year was granted by Lord John Russell in response to a petition by distinguished supporters. Shortly before he died he completed the first half of his autobiography, which forms volume one of The Life of William Carleton, by David James O’Donoghue (London, Downey and Co., 2 volumes, 1896). Among the works on Carleton is Poor Scholar: A Study of William Carleton, by Benedict Kiely (Dublin, The Talbot Press, 1942 [Re-issued Dublin, Wolfhound Press, 1997] ). William Carleton died on the 30th of January 1869, and is buried in Mount Jerome, Dublin. This copy is in NEAR FINE condition in illustrated card wrappers as issued.

Excerpt from Tubber Derg: Or, the Red Well The lesser tales of Carleton present, perhaps, as strong a claim to immortality as a delineator of national character can desire. Thomas Davis, speaking of the Traits and Stories of the Irish Peasantry, well remarks, that we enter into all the sports and sorrows of the characters therein pourtrayed; and this charming quality of fascination will yet live and be attractive, when Carleton s stories will afford no matter for excitement, except that of curiosity towards a state of things extinct and passed away. When this era shall dawn it is impossible to determine; but certain it appears to be, that the last of our chroniclers belongs to the day we live in. And why?

Tyrone on February 20, 1794. His father was a small farmer, the father of fourteen children, of whom William was the youngest. After getting some education, first from a hedge schoolmaster, and then from Dr. Keenan of Glasslough, Carleton set out for Dublin and obtained a tutorship. In 1830 he collected a number of sketches, and these were published under the title of Traits and Stories of the Irish Peasantry, and at once enjoyed considerable popularity. In 1834 came Tales of Ireland, and from that time forward till his death Carleton produced with great industry numerous short stories and novels, though none of his work after 1848 is worthy of his reputation. The Black Prophet was published in 1847, and Carleton believed rightly that it was his best work. It was written in a season of unparalleled scarcity and destitution, and the pictures and scenes represented were those which he himself witnessed in 1817 and 1822. Many of Carleton s novels have been translated into French, German, and Italian, and they will always stand for faithful and powerful pictures of Irish life and character. Carleton died in Dublin on January 30, 1869. For more eBooks visit. Bookseller Inventory # APC9781494795054

The Poor Scholar, 9 A Peasant Girl s Love, 269 Talbot And Gatnor, The Irish Pipers, . 283 Frank Finneqan, The Foster Brother, . 500 INTRODUCTION. - The following account of the origin of the tale of The Poor Scholar, is taken from Mr. Carleton s introduction to a new and revised edition of Mb Traita and Stories of the Irish Peasantry, published in Dublin in 1843. It was about ix months after our removal to Springtown, that an incident in my early life occurred which gave rise to one of the most popular tales, perhaps, with the exception of the Miser, that I have written--that is the Poor Scholar. There being now no classical school within eighteen or twenty miles of Springtown, it was suggested to our family by a nephew of the parish priest, then a young man of six or eight and twenty, that, under the circumstances, it would be a prudent step on their part to prepare an outfit, and send me up to Munster as a Poor Scholar, to complete my education. Pat Frayne, who by the way had been a poor scholar himself, had advised the same thing before, and as the name does not involve disgrace, I felt no reluctance in going, especially as the priest s nephew, who proposed it, had made up his mind on accompanying me for a similar purpose. Indeed, the poor scholars who go to Munster are indebted for nothing but their bed and board, which they receive kindly and hospitably from the parents of the scholars. The masters are generally paid their full term. Bookseller Inventory # APC9781236192127
