YEATS, W.B. Stories from Carleton: With an Introduction by W.B. Yeats. London: Walter Scott, [1889]. pp. xvii, 302, 6 (publisher's list). Original red cloth, gilt lettering and design in black. A very good copy.
This volume is a collection of stories by William Carleton, including The Poor Scholar; Tubber Derg; Wildgoose Lodge; Shane Fadh's Wedding and The Hedge School. The collection is complete with an introduction and notes from William Butler Yeats. Carleton, it seems, was not just a great author of local Irish colour, but was also in a sense, a great historian who recorded the sights and sounds of the world around him. Although he indeed alienated the sympathies of some Irishmen by his unsparing criticism of the darker side of Irish character, he was also appreciated by many for his wistful Irish humour and obvious love for his country. These stories are an important part of Irish literary history.
