Beschreibung

Beschreibung

Ireland entered the 20th century savaged by poverty and memories of the famine but inspired by the Celtic Dawn, a cultural renaissance led by Yeats, Synge and Lady Gregory. Covering both South and North and dealing with social and cultural history as well as political, this book tells the extraordinary story of how Ireland came into existence.

Portrait

Tim Pat Coogan, former editor of the Irish Press, is well known on both sides of the Atlantic for his journalism and especially for his books, which include Wherever Green is Worn, The Troubles, Michael Collins and De Valera.

Pressestimmen

"A journey into our own psyche... Tim Pat Coogan has dug, Heaney-like, into the past while opening doors to faraway places."
--Frank McCourt
"ÝIt is the result of great energy, imagination and painstaking detective work... It is a big book on a big topic. Don't just read it. Buy it and reread it."
--"Irish Times"
