″The third in a series of bi-annual lectures delivered at Barryscourt Castle in Co Cork. The Anglo-Norman period in Munster can be characterised as one of remarkable economic growth. Agricultural development was advanced enough to enable the widespread use of water-powered grain mills amongst all levels of early Irish society. On the basis of the archaeological evidence for the use of water power before the Anglo-Norman settlement, Ireland could not be considered a technological backwater in the early medieval period. Yet, while Anglo-Norman settlers would have found that the native Irish were accomplished millwrights, they had their own distinctive contribution to make, laying, as they did, the seeds of future industrial development in Ireland. In this book, the author outlines the extent of Anglo-Norman settlers’ contribution to the development of industrial energy in Ireland, with special reference to the Munster area. A glossary of technical terms is provided in an appendix. “Continuing the excellent series of booklets from the Barryscourt Trust, we have here a clearly written, well-researched and beautifully illustrated paper by one of Ireland’s foremost authorities on medieval and post-medieval technology and industry … The scholar, student and interested reader alike will find this book both informative and accessible.” – Maurice F Hurley, Journal of the Cork Historical and Archaeological Society “The third lecture, by Colin Rynne, is a fine study based on the author’s own extensive research.” – Irish Historical Studies

Vozenesensky, Selected Poetry and Prose. Voznesensky, Andrei / Smith, William Jay (editor) / Reeve, F.D.(editor). Selected Poetry and Prose. New York Henry Holt and Company, 1987. 15 cm x 23 cm. XXIII, 344 pages. Original softcover. Very good condition with minor signs of external wear. Partially detached endpaper. Inscribed and signed by the author to Myrna [Haugaard]

Includes for example the following poems and essays: I Am Goya / Wall of Death / The Skull Balad / Someone Is Beating A Woman / Dead Still / Striptease / I Am Fourteen / O etc.

″In one of Voznesensky’s new poems he laments Russian bookstores “lined with stacks/ of monolithic published hacks.” Parallels between the U.S. and the U.S.S.R., “two countries . . . guiltily tying nonlove’s knot,” emerge in another previously untranslated lyric. Striking images, searing wit and the courage to speak out mark the Russian poet’s latest output, which also includes tender emotional verses to his mother and a poem about his visit to Picasso’s house in the south of France shortly before the artist’s death. Selections from his previous books, Antiworlds and Nostalgia for the Present, round out the poetry in this bilingual edition. There are two prose selections: “I Am Fourteen,” a telling portrait of his mentor Boris Pasternak, portrayed as an “eternal adolescent,” and “O,” a Fellini-like montage that rhapsodizes the sculpture of Henry Moore, one of Voznesensky’s idols. “(Amazon)
