Reading Retreat 2020 — Irish Literature Online for Notre Dame Community

Posted on March 21, 2020 in New Books

Looking for Irish literature online? Staff and faculty, as well as students, may access ebooks at the Hesburgh Libraries.

It is relatively easy to find online works of literary criticism in the library catalog, but not so easy to find ebooks of fiction and poetry. So I’ve listed some books below.

Note also that if you are a resident of St. Joseph County, you may have access to novels and audio-books in the digital collection of St. Joseph County Public Library.  If you never got around to registering for public library membership, check their website to see how you can register online:

Haven’t you wanted to read one of the English translations of Máirtín Ó Cadhain’s great Irish novel, Cré na Cille since they were both published?

The library has online copies of Graveyard Clay, the translation by Liam Mac Con Iomaire and Tim Robinson.

Máirtín Ó Cadhain. Graveyard Clay: Cré na Cille. A Narrative in Ten Interludes. Translated by Liam Mac Con Iomaire and Tim Robinson. New Haven: Yale U.P., 2016.

In checking our online Irish literature, I noted that the poetry collections online in the Proquest/Literature Online collection are good for reference but not enjoyable for reading, so I did not list them. Similarly, many plays by Irish writers are included in the Drama Online database, but I had repeated problems accessing the database and so I’d rather leave them until another time. 

Disclaimer: I have no ‘inside knowledge’ of the St. Joseph County Public Libraries. I checked their website and catalog for the information above.
