|O’Brien, Edna. Some Irish Loving: A Selection. First Edition. London, Weidenfeld and Nicolson, 1979. 14 x 22cm. 262 pages. Original hardcover with dustjacket in protective collector’s Mylar. Excellent condition, other than small tear to dustjacket. Signed by Edna O’Brien on titlepage.
An anthology selected and introduced by Edna O’Brien on the theme of love. It includes letters, drama, poetry, and short stories ranging from Cuchulain to an anonymous schoolgirl to Synge, Yeats, and Joyce, revealing Irish responses to love in all its forms and providing a catalogue of the ways of loving. In her introduction O’Brien comments that “the more righteous would have us believe that the Irish kept those lubbard appetites concerning love and passion in due subordination. But despite prognostications about the Vanishing Irish and about the excess of bachelors, the country is still there and in it people busily engaged in the drama of love”.
