KAVANAGH, Patrick Studies. An Irish Quarterly Review. Spring, 1959.


1 in stock

Dublin: Sealy, Bryers and Walker, 1949/1951. Royal octavo. Printed red wrappers. A good copy.  Contains ‘From Monaghan to the Grand Canal’. “I have been thinking of making my grove on the banks of the Grand Canal near Baggot Street Bridge where in recent days I rediscovered my roots. My hegira was to the Grand Canal bank where again I saw the beauty of water and green grass and the magic of light. It was the same emotion as I had known when I stood on a sharp slope in Monaghan, where I imaginatively stand now, looking across to Slieve Gullion and South Armagh. An attractive landscape of small farms and a culture that hadn’t changed in a thousand years. A hundred yards away from me I could observe primitive husbandry where Paddy Nugent was threshing oats with a flail in a barn.”
