The authors Toibin brings forth range from the canonical (Jonathan Swift) to the trendy (Roddy Doyle) to the obscure (Robert Tessel), and they all participate, willingly or not, in the argument Toibin describes.

  • I had gotten this book from the library and knew it would be something I would like to own. It consists of short stories from a variety of Irish authors, thereby giving me the names of Irish writers to check out. The only drawback is the very small print.

  • Best part for me so far is Colm Toibin's very knowledgeable introduction to Irish Lit. But I can only read a little of it at a time.

  • I really love this book. A wide selection that covers many authors, styles and time periods. It is a great reference book and also very entertaining.

  • The Penguin book of Irish Fiction is a fine way to sample a variety of works by Irish writers, ranging from an excerpt of Gullivers Travels by Swift to James Joyce's The Dead. Some short stories are included in their entirety, but most of the novels are excerpted from the originals, which is fine if you just want to sample various writers or decide where to go from here... While planning a trip to Ireland, I found this book to be a good one volume education in Irish Literature. In fact, with 1086 pages of very small print, I doubt I can finish it in time.

  • This is an excellent introduction to Irish Literature, to be read through or just sampled. The selections are long enough to help the reader to decide where they'd like to start in a large body of literature. The perfect textbook for Modern Irish Literature 110.
