Product description

From the Back Cover

The Insurrection in Dublin was first published in October 1916, barely six months after the Irish Volunteers' Easter Rising took place. The text was never revised so that it has retained the sense of immediacy that makes it one of the classic works of the period. James Stephens is best known as the author of The Crock of Gold and The Demi Gods as well as for his poetry, but as AE wrote in his review of this work: 'he has the most vivid senses of any Irishman now writing. He kept a journal day by day, writing down what he saw with those keen eyes of his. They are the eyes of the poet and storyteller interested a thousand times more in the character of life, in studying behaviour under abnormal circumstances, than in any other aspects of the rising.' These qualities have kept this book recurrently in print. John A. Murphy, Professor of Irish History at University College, Cork, has contributed an Introduction and Afterword, which set the Rising in its historical context, and assess the impact that it had on Ireland at the time and the subsequent events that led up to the foundation of the Irish Free State.

About the Author

James Stephens (9 February 1880 – 26 December 1950) was an Irish novelist and poet. Stephens's influential book on the 1916 Easter Rising, Insurrection in Dublin, describes the effect of the deaths by execution of his friend Thomas MacDonagh and others as being "like watching blood oozing from under a door". --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
