Three Plays: Juno and The Paycock; The Shadow of a Gunman; The Plough and the Stars, Sean O'Casey
63 Sean O'Casey Three Plays: Juno and The Paycock; The Shadow of a Gunman; The Plough and the Stars
Papermac 243576 Great Britain 1978 0333026659 / 9780333026656 Softcover Good Condition Sean O'Casey was born in 1880 and lived through a bitterly hard boyhood in a Dublin tenement house. He never went to school but received most of his education in the streets of Dublin, and taught himself to read at the age of fourteen. He was successively a newspaper-seller, docker, stone-breaker, railway-worker and builders' labourer. In 1913 he helped to organise the Irish Citizen Army which fought in the streets of Dublin, and at the same time he was learning his dramatic technique by reading Shakespeare and watching the plays of Dion Boucicault. His early works were performed at the Abbey Theatre, Dublin, and Lady Gregory made him welcome at Coole, but disagreement followed and after visiting America in the late thirties O'Casey settled in Devonshire. He lived there until his death in 1964, though still drawing the themes of many of his plays from the life he knew so well on the banks of the Liffey. Out of the ceaseless dramatic experimenting in his plays O'Casey created a flamboyance and versatility that sustain the impression of bigness of mind that is inseparable from his tragi-comic vision of life. 218 pages. Pages well browned. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram. Category: Plays; Theatre & Plays; ISBN: 0333026659. ISBN/EAN: 9780333026656. Inventory No: 243576. Paperback

The Brendan Voyage - A Leather Boat Tracks the Discovery of America by the Irish Sailor Saints, Tim Severin
65 Tim Severin The Brendan Voyage - A Leather Boat Tracks the Discovery of America by the Irish Sailor Saints
Arrow Books 246756 Great Britain 1979 0099194600 / 9780099194606 Softcover Good Condition Could an Irish monk in the sixth century really have sailed all the way across the Atlantic in a small open boat, thus beating Columbus to the New World by almost a thousand years? Relying on the medieval text of St. Brendan, award-winning adventure writer Tim Severin painstakingly researched and built a boat identical to the leather curragh that carried Brendan on his epic voyage. He found a centuries-old, family-run tannery to prepare the ox hides in the medieval way; he undertook an exhaustive search for skilled harness makers (the only people who would know how to stitch the three-quarter-inch-thick hides together); he located one of the last pieces of Irish-grown timber tall enough to make the mainmast. But his courage and resourcefulness were truly tested on the open seas, including one heart-pounding episode when he and his crew repaired a dangerous tear in the leather hull by hanging over the side--their heads sometimes submerged under the freezing waves--to restitch the leather. A modern classic in the tradition of Kon-Tiki, The Brendan Voyage seamlessly blends high adventure and historical relevance. It has been translated into twenty-seven languages since its original publication in 1978. 265 pages. Pages browned. Illustrated with colour photographs. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram. Category: Travel::Adventure; Travel & Places; ISBN: 0099194600. ISBN/EAN: 9780099194606. Inventory No: 246756. Paperback

Black the Night and Wild the Sea, Vincent Smith
66 Vincent Smith Black the Night and Wild the Sea
Xulon Press 230008 USA 2012 1619964821 / 9781619964822 Softcover Very Good Condition Black the Night and Wild the Sea is a story of adventure and intrigue set in the turbulent era of the Australian gold rushes. It is also a love story between two very different characters: Michael Byrnes, a warm hearted but roguish Irish adventurer, and Sele Kanawa, a beautiful and passionate Eurasian missionary. The story ranges from the wild southern coast of Australia to the jungles of the Cape York Peninsula and the wild unexplored islands of Melanesia, where brutal sea captains abducted natives to work as virtual slave labourers, and missionaries risked their lives to stop them. It is also a tale of a woman torn between her love for God and the work she feels called to do, and her love for a man determined to make his fortune. 440 pages. Quantity Available: 1.
