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: Merlin Publishing July 1997, 1997. Paperback. Synopsis\nThis work is a reissue of the biography of the County Tyrone writer William Carleton (1794-1869), originally published in 1947. A novelist and short story writer, Carleton shares his birth place with Benedict Kiely and Flann O'Brien. In Carleton, Kiely saw the making of modern Ireland. Kiely writes of the man and the writer, reflecting what life was like just before and after the Famine. Although he lived and worked in Dublin, Carleton is best remembered for his evocation of the way of life he experienced in his early days in the Clogher Valley. He portrayed the people, and his own neighbours at Prolusk, Towney and Springtown. His most celebrated book remains his collection of tales published in 1830 and 1833, "Traits and Stories of the Irish Peasantry". Bookseller Inventory # a7d8535b65eed18fddb95c06c7c66a2b

Item Description: Mercier Press, Cork, 1972. Paperback. Book Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: 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.

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] ).

Item Description: Mercier Press, Cork, 1972. Paperback. Book Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: 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).

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.

Item Description: Aegypan. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. Hardcover. 120 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.0in. x 0.4in.William Carleton was an Irish novelist, and one of fourteen children of a tenant farmer. Carletons early life resembled what he later described in his books. His father had an extraordinary memory and a thorough acquaintance with Irish folklore, which Carleton drew upon in later works such as Traits and Stories of Irish Peasantry. He became regarded as one of the great Irish novelists, and a master chronicler of the lives and character on the Irish people. The Dark Day is a collection of Careltons stories, including the title piece, Lha Dhu (subtitled The Dark Day) In the tale, a marriage divides a family and leads to tragedy. Ellen Duncan deals with crushing poverty and a man condemned by mistake. The Proctors Daughter shows the change that can be wrought by a simply act of kindness, and The Dead Boxer has Strong Handed ORorke tangling with old Nell McCollum, who blames his family for her ills, and schemes against him. Careletons stories are the trials of common people, told in their own words, full of the sense of time and place that marked his stories. This item ships from multiple locations.

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
