George Russell (AE) and the New Ireland, 1905-30

By Nicholas Allen

George Russell (1867-1935), poet and author, was a central figure of the Irish literary revival. He was editor of early 20th-century Ireland's two most important journals, the Irish Homestead (1905-23) and the Irish Statesman (1923-30). Russell published work across four decades by Joyce, Kavanagh, O'Casey, O'Connor, ? Faol?in, O'Flaherty, Shaw, Stuart and Yeats. He was a radical intellectual involved with anarchism, labor and Sinn F?in, his passions evidencing a revival in Irish thought that merged literature and culture with politics and revolution. This book brings the reader to a world of constant controversy, of journals, little magazines, pamphlets and propaganda, narrated here in one major synthesis.
