Four Irish Poets - Quatre Poetes Irlandais

Author(s): ONA, ORD, RIORDAIN, BORAN
ISBN13/Barcode: 9781906614447
PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
From the preface: The oral essence of poetry is more marked in Ireland than possibly anywhere else; this is without doubt linked to the bardic tradition, with its reliance on assonance as an aid to memorisation. In Irish poetry, the private nature of poetry is perhaps less important than poetry seen as a form of public art, which includes the recitation of favourite poems and poetry readings given by the poets themselves . or by readers. The Irish attraction for this type of event is without an equivalent in France.
