Description: The Irish Review is a short but significant publication with a wide focus, mainly covering Irish literature and education. The journal is particularly notable for a very high level of literary content, including poems and prose from a number of eminent authors, such as George Moore, W. B. Yeats, Thomas MacDonagh, and Emily Lawless. The quality of the material which appeared 1912-1913 has been described as 'astounding - no Irish magazine could touch it, and only a few from any era have come close'. A number of literary articles and poetry are written in Old Irish. In addition, the journal includes minor articles on economics, history, and science, contributed by prominent scholars (Kuno Meyer and Maud Gonne). Despite claims to represent Irish intellectual life without partisanship, the political leanings of the editor and major contributors strongly influence the outlook of the journal from June 1914 onwards. Consequently, this journal will be of interest to scholars of Irish literature, culture, and politics and to those researching the Irish intellectual movement in the early twentieth century.
