Summary "Over the past twenty years, interest in Irish literature has risen dramatically across the globe. Irish Literature, 1750-1900: An Anthology presents in one volume the rich body of Irish writing between the Enlightenment and Modernism." "This expansive anthology offers full texts of short plays, fiction, and poetry by a wide selection of prominent writers, including Richard Brinsley Sheridan, Maria Edgeworth, Thomas Moore, James Clarence Mangan, Samuel Ferguson, Lady Jane Wilde, and Oscar Wilde. It features a selection of collaboratively authored works by the Edgeworths, the Banims, and the Kavanaghs, as well as excerpts from collaborative publications such as Paddy's Resource and The Nation. Special attention is paid to the work of Ireland's women writers, as well as a number of Ulster poets and writers who emigrated to North America during this period." "Designed specifically for classroom use, this essential resource offers a variety of helpful features for students, including a chronology of historical events and major literary works of the era."--BOOK JACKET.
