Product description

The Exploring English series of textbooks has resonated with countless thousands of Irish students. For many these anthologies provided a gateway to a lifetime of reading and enjoyment of literature. They are still a cherished possession in many households, taken out occasionally and nostalgically to read a story, poem or essay, and perhaps even to read the accompanying notes - so enlightening for some yet so challenging for others. First published in 1967, the poetry anthology appears again in an exact facsimile of the original edition. So here are all those classics of your schooldays, from such giants of English literature as William Wordsworth, Walter Scott, Robert Frost, T.S. Eliot, and their Irish counterparts, W.B. Yeats, James Stephens, Austin Clarke and Thomas Kinsella. Whether it's the deceptive simplicity of 'Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening' that you remember, the tenderness of 'In Memory of My Mother' or the immortal words from 'Easter 1916', 'A terrible beauty is born' - this is the book precisely as you will have remembered it. Read once more and enjoy!
