Contemplating Ireland

Gleeson, James

Code 2620
ISBN: 9780967937502
Publisher: Atlantic Ireland Publishing


The irresistible allure of the Irish landscape, its ever changing skies, and its ancient treasures is captured in Contemplating Ireland. James Gleason's vivid duotone photographs, complimented by selections from Ireland's rich poetic tradition, transport the reader to ancient Celtic burial sites, barren coastal islands, crumbling monastic ruins and deserted villages. Deirdre Purcell, whose best-selling titles include A Place Of Stones and That Childhood Country, is beloved in Ireland for her lyrical portrayals of Irish life and richly descriptive narratives. Her introduction to Contemplating Ireland shares intimate reflections about the landscape and its many textures.
