Description
A stalwart people with an often harrowing history, the Irish have endured in part because of their ribald sense of humor. Combing library archives, Criostoir O'Flynn has uncovered dozens of examples of the Emerald Isle's humorous poems and limericks, from as long ago as the late Middle Ages, including such classics as "To a Snorer," "The Monk's Welcome to the Herring," "Response of an Angry Customer," and "Lament for a Bailiff." In addition to penning an extensive introduction, O'Flynn introduces each poet with a biographical sketch and comments on his or her poem, and even includes the original Irish texts. Expect poems about love, drinking, and the hard life, that are nevertheless enlivened with pathos and scathing irony.
