Forging the Anchor

Samuel Ferguson and his Legacy

Edited by: Jan Jedrzejewski, Frank Ferguson

Acclaimed by W.B. Yeats as one of Ireland's most significant poets of the 19th century, Samuel Ferguson enjoyed prominence as a critic, antiquarian and public figure. Despite his great achievement, he has suffered from relative neglect in Irish scholarship in the century since his death. This collection recovers the depth and reach of Ferguson's literary accomplishment through a series of interlocking chapters that examine his varied motivations as a poet and cultural critic; his work and influence upon generations of Irish writers; and his seminal presence in Ireland and beyond.
