Denis Devlin: Collected Poems by J. C. C. Mays

Book Description

In 1934 Samuel Beckett named Denis Devlin and Brian Coffey as "without question the most interesting of the youngest generation of Irish poets". When the first edition of the present volume appeared in 1989 (in what would prove to be the year of Beckett's death), he signalled his appreciation with a brief message which concluded: "Amends at last." Yet in recent years Devlin's visibility has again faded. Though often cited as one of the great modernist and modernising influences on Irish poetry, his substantial body of work is both under-read and perhaps as often mis-read. As JCC Mays points out in his Introduction, Devlin's writing "has attracted readers who have taken it to stand for a kind which anticipates the ambitions of writing now, and which is cognate with the beginnings of post-modernism in other traditions. In Ireland, he has been taken as an exemplary poet of a kind at variance with the dominant antimodernist tradition and a kind of rallying-point." Of the relative popularity of his work during his years in Washington in the diplomatic service, Mays writes: "Even so, the reputation he enjoyed rested partly upon misunderstanding." Twenty years on from its original publication, this reissue affords contemporary readers the opportunity to re-evaluate a complex, often challenging body of work, while the Introductory essay by JCC Mays, since retired as Professor of Modern English and American Literature at University College Dublin, remains exemplary for its depth of learning, insight and even-handedness.

Books By Author J. C. C. Mays

Coleridge's Experimental Poetics by J. C. C. Mays Coleridge's Experimental Poetics, Hardback (March 2013)

Coleridge has been perceived as the youthful author of a few brilliant poems. This study argues that his poetry is actually a continuous process of experimentation and provides a new perspective on both familiar and unfamiliar poems, as well as the relation between Coleridge's poetry and philosophical thinking.

Diarmuid and Grania by J. C. C. Mays Diarmuid and Grania, Hardback (January 2005)

Mays writes, "If one looks beyond words or passages that can be tagged with an author's name and a specific date, one can see signatures of each author no less clearly than such tags afford and perhaps see each writer more pervasively inhabiting the characters and situations of the play."

Collected Works of Samuel Taylor Coleridge by J. C. C. Mays Collected Works of Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Hardback (October 2001)

Poetry in its many guises is at the center of Coleridge's multifarious interests. This edition of his poetical works marks the pinnacle of the Bollingen Collected Coleridge. Setting standards of comprehensiveness in the presentation of Romantic texts, it is useful for historians and editorial theorists, as well as readers and students of poetry.

Talking of Joyce by J. C. C. Mays Talking of Joyce, Paperback (March 1998)

Joyce preferred to speak Italian at home so it is no surprise to find two Italian scholars lecturing and writing about James Joyce in English. This book contains lectures on Joyce by Umberto Eco and Liberato Santoro-Brienza.
