The UCD Aesthetic: Celebrating 150 Years of UCD Writers
New Island, Jan 1, 2005 - English literature - 298 pages
"University College Dublin has been at the centre of Irish intellectual and cultural life since its foundation 150 years ago. And over those years a host of famed writers have either worked there as teachers, or attended as students. Here 28 lauded UCD graduates and academics focus on 28 legendary UCD writers, from the moving prose of Cardinal Newman to the revolutionary poetics of Gerard Manley Hopkins, from Kate O'Brien to Mary Lavin, from James Joyce to Flann O'Brien. The UCD Aesthetic confirms the indelible legacy of UCD, a legacy still apparent today in the work of John McGahern, Maire Mhac an tSaoi, Thomas Kinsella, John Montague and Frank McGuinness."--BOOK JACKET.
