Scholarly, Academic, Historically Comprehensive; Where's the Humor? 8 July 2007
By John Michael Albert - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a very scholarly textbook. It absolutely does what it sets out to do: provide an academic overview of the breadth of the history of Irish and English poetry from Ireland. That being said, where's the humor? Where's the humanity? Political and ecclesiastical history are well represented, and there's blood and tragedy a'plenty; but where are the people? I have to assume that I purchased something with extremely flawed expectations, but maybe that will help you decide whether to buy it.

Wanted More Postwar Stuff... 9 Jun. 2013
By C.J. Pariseau - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
but this will do. I am interested in this particular literary tradition, and this dog-eared copy is worn but well worth the price. Again, just wish there were more of the contemporary folks.
