Description

Originally published in 1925, A Golden Treasury of Irish Verse is an impressive and beautifully crafted collection of the best of Irish poetry from ancient times to the early twentieth century.

It features folklore and legend, often beautifully translated from Gaelic with contributions from William Congreve, Thomas Moore, Moira O’Neill, Katharine Tynan, Padraic Colum and many more.

This edition was created by Irish poet and dramatist Lennox Robinson whose main criteria for selection was that each poem should be excellent. He acknowledges the help of both W. B. Yeats and A. E. Housman in choosing the poems and poets.

Capturing wide-ranging themes of love and loss, home and country, freedom and conflict, this beautifully produced collection of uplifting verse makes the perfect gift for poetry lovers everywhere.
