Poetry — What has arrived from Ireland?

Reviewing the titles of new poetry books, I came once more to the wonderful title of Paula Meehan’s 
Imaginary Bonnets with Real Bees in Them. I then discovered that I could listen to her lecture on a UCD Scholarcast.

Finding Fiction

Posted on July 25, 2017 in New Books

 

Books posing together for a photo.

Bookshops display bestsellers and attractive fiction, making book selection easy and pleasant. Academic libraries, on the other hand, have fiction integrated with literary criticism and it’s not always easy to just walk in and find a novel to read.  Notre Dame’s Hesburgh Library has a great collection of Irish fiction, but identifying authors and books in the catalog takes time.

So this list is a selection of Irish fiction available for loan in the Hesburgh Library.
