9780192141804: The Oxford Book of Irish Short Stories (Oxford Books of Prose & Verse)

Ireland has been called a nation of story-tellers. "Stories of one kind or another have a way of pressing themselves into Irish conversation, both as entertainment and as a form of communication," writes William Trevor. "For centuries they have been offered to strangers, almost as hospitality is: tall stories, simple stories, stories of extraordinary deeds, of mysteries and wonders, of gentleness, love, cruelty, and violence." Himself an accomplished short story writer, Trevor has gathered here a collection of stories that represent not only the best of Irish short story writing, but the best of the genre.
Spanning the entire history of the Irish short story, from folk-tales to modern writing, this is the most broad-ranging anthology available. Included are such masters as James Joyce and Elizabeth Bowen, who established Ireland at the forefront of the modern short story, as well as Frank O'Connor and Sean O'Faolain, the two most important writers since Joyce and Bowen. Trevor has selected stories by Bernard McLaverty and Desmond Hogan to represent the new generation of writers. But, as Elizabeth Bowen observed, the modern short story in Ireland is "a young art," and it is against the nation's deeply rooted oral tradition that it must be considered. Toward this end, The Oxford Book of Irish Short Stories includes seven folk tales translated from the Irish by Sean O'Sullivan, and Seamus MacManus's re-telling of an Irish fairy tale.
William Trevor is one of today's most famous and respected Irish writers. (His work is represented here by the short story "Death in Jerusalem.") The 45 stories he has selected for this anthology, for which he has written a generous introduction, cover a 250-year period and works by 35 authors. Together they demonstrate the development of the short story in Ireland, a land where a flair for storytelling has "become a national characteristic."

Review :

'The book sparkles with apt descriptions'
Penny Perrick, Sunday Times

'This magnificent anthology chronicles the development of a rich literary tradition from early folktales to Joyce and the new generation'
Books

'the stories in this Oxford anthology are thoroughly and well selected; and from them we can learn a great deal about Ireland's pungent but stifling social atmosphere'
The Independent

'Trevor, himself a writer of note, has chosen some of the finest examples of the art form ranging from early folk tales ... It is a little taste of Ireland that leaves you hungry for more.'
Maurice Neill, Sunday News

'it is the supreme merit of this splendid anthology that almost all readers will want to draw more from the wells from which William Trevor's draughts surely make him the Irish Ganymede.'
Owen Dudley Edwards, The Scotsman

'entertaining collection from the Emerald Isle ... most have been put together by some of the finest writers of the English language'
Evening Advertiser (Swindon)

'Trevor has put together an all-embracing volume with some beguiling choices ... This is a rich volume, a splendid bedside-dipper, and handsomely produced.'
Alun Richards, Wales on Sunday

'the stories in this Oxford anthology are thoroughly and well selected; and from them we can learn a great deal about Ireland's pungent but stifling atmosphere.'
Patricia Craig, Independent

'The publishers have crammed so much into this nicely- bound 563pp volume that you have to work at keeping the pages open but is still a book with the promise of days of enjoyment.'
The Phoenix

'a distinguished collection ... Oxford's thoughtful and elegant anthology'
Flatlander
