Riguardo questo articolo

Language: English . Brand New Book. For a century and a half, the reputation of the Irish poet, James Clarence Mangan (1803-1849), has been based mainly upon a small number of poems, and a biographical tradition that cast him as a tortured genius. W. B. Yeats and James Joyce were both admirers of his work on these grounds. Yet his achievement as a whole was much more complex and varied, ranging across over 900 poems and a significant amount of creative and critical prose. In this comprehensive single-volume selection of Mangan s poetry and prose, Mangan can be appreciated not only for the poignancy and power of his well-known late poems and autobiographical writings, but also for those talents admired by his original readers: his astonishing metrical skills, his love of wordplay, his surrealist humour, and his sympathetic understanding of Irish and European literatures. He emerges here as a witty and intelligent craftsman as well as a emotionally-charged romantic, and his audacious experiments with translation and parody make him seem remarkably contemporary. In this edition, too, Mangan s fascinating prose commentaries are restored to their original positions surrounding his poems, and readers are for the first time given a generous selection of Mangan s critical writing and letters.

Descrizione articolo


Joyce decreed he was ""the most distinguished poet of the Celtic world and one of the most inspired poets of any country ever to make use of the lyric form."" His gravestone proclaims him to be ""Ireland's National Poet."" His poetry draws on an extraordinary range of sources, including exotic languages and legends, and includes ""translations"" for which there were no originals. Propelled frequently by hypnotic rhythms, enlightened by verbal play and ingenuity, from couplets to long poems, Mangan's verse gives voice to the starkness of his own predicament and, in a poem like `Siberia,' fuses a desolate interior with the great concern of Famine Ireland.


"For both the Mangan enthusiast and the Mangan innocent [this edition is] to be welcomed ... Sean Ryder has edited the poems afresh and provides full publication details after the texts ... When a prose introduction is appropriate he supplies it. When the music is needed, he prints it. We get as much of a sense of the odd textual appearance of Mangan's poetry from his edition as possible, and we get ample selection from Mangan's prose." Irish Studies Review 13 (2) 2005
