About this Item

This popular Irish poet ("The Book of Irish Ballads" 1846, "Irish Legends and Lyrics" 1858, "Poems" 1882, etc.) was fascinated by Spanish literature and translated many of Pedro Calderon de la Barca's plays. AMS, 1p, 4½" X 7", London, England, n.y. Near fine. Faint mounting trace on verso along left edge. In light purple ink, MacCarthy writes out his poem "Youth and Age," which begins: "To give the blossom and the fruit / The soft warm air that wraps them round, / Oh! think how long the toilsome rot / Must live and labour 'neath the ground." Second full stanza also neatly penned, followed by his full signature and address, below which he notes "Written out for Mrs. Alice L. Williams, Chicago." A charming example.
