The Hidden Ireland

by Louis Cullen (Author), Peter Ross (Author)

Daniel Corkery's The Hidden Ireland: A Study of Gaelic Munster in the Eighteenth Century, has had sustained appeal since its publication in 1925. There Corkery used literary evidence to sustain a picture of relieved poverty and oppression, spiritual counterpart to the social and economic conditions described by the Victorian chroniclers Froude and Lecky. This important text, supplemented with a new Postscript and English-language translations of the poetry cited, is now available to the general reader, literary critic, historian and student of Irish affairs alike.
