44 Irish Short Stories book.

The Irish have always had a way with words

The Irish have always had a way with words. Nowhere is this magic more in evidence than in their short stories-stories that combine lyricism, humor and tragedy with rare imagination set in simple backgrounds, largely without props. The seemingly effortless art of the best Irish writers has an appeal that is naive and highly sophisticated at the same time; the disarming simplicity with which the tales are spun being somewhat misleading at first reading

Forty-Four Irish short Stories is one of my most treasured books. I enjoyed this book and you would also if you had a love for Irish stories. I picked up a battered paperback copy at a yardsale years ago for 25 cents, and it's proven to be worth much, much more.

Once again the ebullience of fancy- and at the same time realism, humor, and a deep religious faith unify these stories and lend a special character- and charm.

The Irish short story has a distinctive place in the modern Irish literary tradition. Many of Ireland's best writers, both in English and Irish, have been practitioners of the genre. It is possible that the Irish short story evolved naturally from the ancient tradition of oral storytelling in Ireland. The written word has been cultivated in Ireland since the introduction of the Roman alphabet by the Christian missionaries in the fifth century

  • A wonderful book I once had on my book shelf. Lost to the ages and then found once more on Amazon. I am so pleased to have it near. Wonderful stories to reread.

  • I'm of Irish decent and I love to find things that have the Irish slant on stories. This was a very interestion book.

  • It's a good read. I didn't waste my time or money. I'm glad I went along for the ride.

  • Books like this are what make me fall in love with reading all over again. The stories are thought provoking, yet simple, and easy to follow. Many of them paint the characters and landscapes differently but also with a sense of familiarity (even though I have never been to Ireland). I would recommend this book to anyone who loves the Irish culture or who loves the simple pleasures that reading can provide.

  • Forty-Four Irish short Stories is one of my most treasured books. I picked up a battered paperback copy at a yardsale years ago for 25 cents, and it's proven to be worth much, much more. Every story flows one into the other, entrancing the reader with the otherworldly and mystical Celtic outlook which defines Irish literature. It covers everything from fairies and elves, to the beginnings of The Troubles and the IRA, and in every sense, embodies the stoic, the skeptic and the paradoxically mystical and magical nature of the Irish mind. Buy it!

  • Frank O Conner is one of my favorite Authors of short stories. I enjoyed this book and you would also if you had a love for Irish stories.
