The Exploring English series of textbooks has resonated with countless thousands of Irish students. For many these anthologies provided a gateway to a lifetime of reading and enjoyment of literature. They are still a cherished possession in many households, taken out occasionally and nostalgically to read a story, poem or essay, and perhaps even to read the accompanying notes - so enlightening for some yet so challenging for others. First published in 1967, the poetry anthology appears again in an exact facsimile of the original edition. So here are all those classics of your schooldays, from such giants of English literature as William Wordsworth, Walter Scott, Robert Frost, T.S. Eliot, and their Irish counterparts, W.B. Yeats, James Stephens, Austin Clarke and Thomas Kinsella. Whether it's the deceptive simplicity of 'Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening' that you remember, the tenderness of 'In Memory of My Mother' or the immortal words from 'Easter 1916', 'A terrible beauty is born' - this is the book precisely as you will have remembered it. Read once more and enjoy!

Author Information

Augustine Martin was one of a small handful of pioneers who revolutionised the teaching of English in the 1960s. His energy and enthusiasm as an educator were imparted originally as a secondary school teacher at Mount St Joseph's in Roscrea and later as lecturer, subsequently as professor, of Anglo- Irish Literature at University College Dublin. Throughout his life he encouraged his students to commit to their own intellectual freedom. His books have endured beyond his early death in 1995. James J. Carey was a teacher of English and Latin and a well-known author of textbooks in both subjects.
