Edward A. Hagan describes O'Grady as ""at once a political polemicist, a creative writer, and a somewhat unusual historian,"" involved in all three roles in this utopian treatise which ""reveals the pervasive influence of classical scholarship upon the Irish intellectual life of the period."" O'Grady argues for drastic change in Ireland in the first part and in the second makes extensive use of classical Greece as a model for Ireland. Some parts of it were published as journal articles in his lifetime, but most are published here for the first time.

About the Author:

Edward A. Hagan is Professor of English at Western Connecticut State University.

Review:

"a welcome republication, intelligently introduced by Hagan in such a way as to emphasise its purely utopian dimensions." Utopian Studies 16.1 2004 "O'Grady's Sun and Wind is well worth reading, whether from a historical, a literary or a general interest point of view. In it come together a number of trends which link the nineteenth with the twentieth century and that can still engage the reader today: social and political change, nationhood, religion, idealism, and childhood. It combines the romantic, the spiritual, the political and the personal, and presents O'Grady as a questioning and flexible thinker." Irish Studies Review 13 (4) 2005 "University College Dublin Press has now published over thirty 'Classics of Irish History'. These contemporary accounts by well known personalities of historical events and attitudes have an immediacy that conventional histories do not have. Introductions by modern historians provide additional historical background and, with hindsight, objectivity." Books Ireland Nov 2007 "Scholars of nineteenth-century Irish and Irish-American politics should reacquaint themselves with these classics, part of a long running and immensely useful series from University College Dublin Press." Irish Literary Supplement Fall 2008
