1 in stock

Dublin: Connradh na Gaedhilge, n.d. [c.1908]. Post octavo. pp. [iv], 117, [1]. Grey pictorial wrappers. With the four colour plates and other illustrations by Beatrice Elvery. Repair to spine. A good copy.
Pearse wrote several short stories in Irish, of which the best- known was perhaps ‘Íosagán’, his stories helped pioneer modern prose writing in Irish by breaking away from stylised inherited conventions, in that they were partly based on the life and language of Connemara, especially the area around Rosmuc. Here he acquired a cottage in 1907, and here he would spend as much time as he could salvage from the press of affairs in Dublin.
