Description for Classic Irish Short Stories Paperback. Good Irish short stories will always be a delight. In this selection by Frank O'Connor, himself a distinguished short-story writer, the richly varied Irish tradition of spinning a yarn is triumphantly displayed. Editor(s): O'Connor, Frank. Num Pages: 352 pages. BIC Classification: DSK. Category: (G) General (US: Trade). Dimension: 194 x 131 x 21. Weight in Grams: 260.
From its origins in the folk tale, through its evolution in response to changing social and political conditions to its current form, the Irish short story has retained its own distinct and unique form. The finest writers of their time are represented here by their best work, showing the variety of style and approach within the genre. From George Moore's masterpiece, `Homesickness', and the warmth and humour of James Stephens, to the romantic eloquence of Bryan MacMahon, these stories capture the Irish people, their way of life, mythology and history.
