Summary
Georgetown University professor George O'Brien delivers lectures on four masters of Irish literature. Oscar Wilde, W.B. Yeats, James Joyce, and Samuel Beckett created works of startling innovation and unparalleled literary merit. They defied popular expectations and confounded critics with unique masterpieces that might have been thought of as puzzles, the solutions of which lie at the heart of the modern age. Professor O'Brien provides the biographical background of these authors and an in-depth analysis of their greatest works
