Irish Stories and Folklore: A Collection of Thirty-Six Classic Tales
Ireland's Finest Writers Together in an Entertaining and Humorous AnthologyFor a comparatively small country, Ireland's contributions to the world of literature have been enormous. From the older tradition, Irish writers have inherited a sense of wonder in the face of nature, a narrative style that tends toward the deliberately exaggerated or absurd, and a keen sense of the power of satire. These themes carry through the entire canon of Irish literature, up until modern times. Stephen Brennan brings us this collection of classic stories, essays, and fairytales that inform the past and therefore, the present, of our most beloved fiction.
Stephen Brennan has coauthored several books, and has edited such collection as The Best Ghost Stories Ever Told and The Best War Stories Ever Told, amongst others. He resides in New York City.
