The Fathers of Wilde, Yeats and Joyce

E-bok (Drm),  Engelska, 2018-10-25
An intimate study of three of Ireland's greatest writers from one of its best-loved contemporary voices, Colm T ib n__________________In Mad, Bad, Dangerous to Know Colm T ib n takes three of Ireland's greatest writers - Oscar Wilde, W.B. Yeats and James Joyce - and examines their earliest influences: their fathers.With his inimitable wit and sensitivity, T ib n introduces us to Wilde Senior, the philandering doctor whose libel case prefigured that of his son; the elder Yeats, an impoverished artist who never finished a painting; and to John Stanislaus Joyce, the hard-drinking, storytelling father of James, who couldn't feed his own family.This is an illuminating study of how each of these men cast a long shadow not only over the lives of their famous sons, but over the works for which they are celebrated and cherished.__________________'Astonishing to read.
