This sixteenth volume of the Coole Edition of Lady Gregory's Writings contains her early published and unpublished fiction, the two versions of 'An Emigrant's Notebook' (1883), the three Angus Grey stories, 'A Philanthropist', 'A Gentleman' and 'Peeler Astore' (1890-91) and her 1893 'A Phantom's Pilgrimage, or Home Ruin'. This collection is preceded by Sir William Gregory's prescient and virtually unknown privately printed 1881 pamphlet on the Land League, which greatly influenced Lady Gregory's thought and writings. Added as Appendices are her poems 'Alas, a woman may not love' (1886). her 'prison' poems sent to Wilfrid Scawen Blunt (1888) and 'The Eviction' (1888).

James Pethica has provided an Introduction, Acknowledgements, A Note on Editorial Principles, and A Note on Archival Materials and Critical Work on Lady Gregory's Early Writings. More info →

This collection brings together Jo Rippier’s writings about fishing, fact and fiction, and in one case ‘dramatic’. He has recorded memorable experiences that occurred during his life in his pursuit of fish, and meeting unusual personalities, such as Mr Justice T. C. Kingsmill Moore (‘Saracen’), and Hugh Falkus, as well letting his imagination provide a number of fictional tales. Together they provide the reader with a variety of enjoyable stories and articles, and some historical illustrations, mostly from Punch, ideal for fishermen with time on their hands.
