For the Love of Ireland collects work of Ireland's greatest writers within a travelogue. Author Susan Cahill walks the streets of Dublin with Jonathan Swift, James Joyce, Samuel Beckett, and Roddy Doyle, contemplates the glens of Wicklow with John Millington Synge and Seamus Heaney, wanders the Cliffs of Moher with Wallace Stevens, and visits Limerick with Frank McCourt; Coole Park with Lady Gregory; Sligo with William Butler Yeats; Donegal with Brien Friel; and hidden Clare with Edna O'Brien.

No place has inspired more great literature than Ireland, which in each new generation gives birth to an astonishing number of poets, storytellers, and dramatists. For the literary pilgrim to arrive, book in hand, at the pub where Joyce set a scene or the mountain where Yeats imagined a myth is to uncover fresh meaning in the works of writers in love with their native landscape.

In For the Love of Ireland, Susan Cahill offers the jewels of Irish literature. Each selection is followed by traveler's advice on how to find and fully experience the place that's about. Whether you take this book with you to Ireland or savor it in your armchair, you will be enriched, ennobled, and entertained by writers of remarkable range and at the top of their form.
