Book Description
There is far more to Jack B. Yeats than has met the eye. His father once said, "Some day I shall be remembered as the father of a great poet, and the poet is Jack." Purser argues that Jack B. Yeats' writings have been misunderstood, that the writer was educated among the people in the West of Ireland, without the social and literary preconceptions and traditions of the universities. He suggests that Jack Yeats was wily and clever in his use of symbolism. With this background in mind, and with the aid of evidence previously unused-including a new chronology-new interpretations are given for many of his works and an overall pattern in the novels is revealed.

From Library Journal
Murphy, whose Prodigal Father (LJ 4/1/78) was nominated for a National Book Award, creates a novellike portrait of Yeats in brilliant and lucid prose.

Loyalty held the family together, despite the financial and artistic failures of the father, which became a burden for the entire family. The children each reacted differently to the father's artistic shortcomings and his poor "sense of economy," but he did give them a sense that...

Book Description
From its earliest history, Ireland has been contested land, claimed by waves of invaders, each attempting to inscribe and possess the island territory. The éire/Land exhibition, to be held at the McMullen Museum from February to May 2003, is the first major art exhibition to examine this theme. From medieval topographical surveys and Celtic artifacts to nineteenth-century landscapes and the expressionist art of the present day, éire/Land collects pieces that collectively reveal Ireland's contested past--including works by Dierdre O'Mahony, Jack Butler Yeats, Sean Keating, and architect Brian Tolle. Drawing on original research by prominent international scholars and by the largest and most distinguished Irish studies faculty in North America, this catalog relates those works and artifacts to new...
