More About Irish Stories and Folklore by Stephen Brennan
 
 
 
Overview
For a comparatively small country, Ireland's contributions to the world of literature have been enormous. From the older tradition, Irish writers have inherited a sense of wonder in the face of nature, a narrative style that tends toward the deliberately exaggerated or absurd, a keen sense of the power of satire. These themes carry through the entire canon of Irish literature, up until modern times. Stephen Brennan brings us this collection of classic stories, essays, and fairytales that inform the past and therefore, the present, of our most beloved fiction.
This collection of thirty-six stories includes the influential works of Ireland's most treasured authors, including:
- Oscar Wilde
- Jonathan Swift
- James Joyce
- W. B. Yeats
- And so many more
In Irish Stories and Folklore, the reader can revisit old favorites like Oscar Wilde's short story, "The Canterville Ghost" and discover lesser known treasures such as, "The Orangeman: Or the Honest Boy and the Thief" by Maria Edgeworth. The imaginative stories contained in this volume are sure to engage the mind and delight readers looking to enhance their knowledge of the rich history of Irish literature and folklore.

Skyhorse Publishing, as well as our Arcade, Yucca, and Good Books imprints, are proud to publish a broad range of books for readers interested in fiction--novels, novellas, political and medical thrillers, comedy, satire, historical fiction, romance, erotic and love stories, mystery, classic literature, folklore and mythology, literary classics including Shakespeare, Dumas, Wilde, Cather, and much more. While not every title we publish becomes a New York Times bestseller or a national bestseller, we are committed to books on subjects that are sometimes overlooked and to authors whose work might not otherwise find a home.
