By James Clarence Mangan

Edited by: Jacques Chuto, Rudolph Holzapfel, Ellen Shannon-Mangan, Peter Van De Kamp

Contributions by: Terence Brown

James Clarence Mangan (1803-1849), the greatest Irish poet before Yeats, was for a long time both famous and unknown. While legends about him prospered after his death, his works remained largely unread. Only recently have his poems been collected by an international team of scholars and published by Irish Academic Press. It is from this four-volume edition that the present selection has been made. Containing upwards of 230 annotated poems, it provides the general reader with a more complete view of Mangan's many-faceted genius than has hitherto been available.
