About this title

Synopsis:

The Shelf2Life Irish Folklore and History Collection is a unique set of materials focused on Irish history, people and culture in the late 18th to early 20th centuries. Firsthand accounts tell of life during Ireland's tumultuous 19th century, offering vivid depictions of the tithe war and the great famine, while biographies highlight important historical figures and their tireless campaign for Irish reform. Included in this collection are works that capture the imaginative and occasionally frightening world of Irish folklore with legendary stories of fairies, leprechauns, changelings and pooka. This collection provides folklore enthusiasts, historians and anyone interested in Ireland, especially those of Irish descent, an unparalleled perspective on the economic struggles and cultural identity of the Irish people.

About the Author:

William Butler Yeats (1865 - 1939) was an Irish poet and one of the foremost figures of 20th-century literature. A pillar of both the Irish and British literary establishments, he helped to found the Abbey Theatre and in his later years served as an Irish Senator for two terms, and was a driving force behind the Irish Literary Revival along with Lady Gregory, Edward Martyn and others, founded the Abbey Theater, where he served as its chief during its early years. In 1923, he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature as the first Irishman so honored for what the Nobel Committee described as "inspired poetry, which in a highly artistic form gives expression to the spirit of a whole nation". Yeats is considered to be one of the few writers who completed their greatest works after being awarded the Nobel Prize. --Wikipedia
