Celebrating the Emerald Isle's spectacular literary pedigree, Irish Stories and Folklore presents classic short stories, essays, and fairy tales by some of the country's most treasured sons and daughters. From Jonathan Swift's "A Modest Proposal" to Maria Edgeworth's "An Essay on the Noble Science of Self-Justification," from Lady Gregory's "Sea-Stories" to James Joyce's "Grace," the thirty-six short works (mostly from the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries) brilliantly showcase the imaginative whimsy and sharp humor that have come to be hallmarks of the Irish literary tradition. Anyone interested in Irish history and culture will relish this spirited anthology! (AG)
