Summary
  • "This collection is the first volume to comprise notable selections from the Irish Literary Supplement. These sixteen interviews - some of the most distinguished pieces ever published in the journal - originally appeared in its pages between the years 1984 and 1994. James P. Myers, Jr., introduces the collection with a critical essay exploring some of the aesthetics and conventions of the interview form itself. The conversations record the authors' perceptions of their own works, the process by which those writing came into being, and commentary on other writers' work. From the lively give-and-take of the dialogue, the interviews reveal the passion with which the authors regard literature and their own writing. The book will serve as primary material for students and will preserve for Irish literature the discourse and methods of some of its preeminent writers."--Jacket
