Writer, poet, academic, broadcaster and re-founder of the magazine "Poetry Ireland", Dublin-born John Jordan (1930-88) was a distinguished scholar - critic in the Dublin of the fifties and sixties. This gathering of prose essays and reviews are taken from the columns of the "Irish Press", "Hibernia", "The Crane Bag" and "Irish University Review". They focus on Joyce, Kavanagh, O'Casey, Behan, Bowen, Gregory, Shaw and Wilde, as well as on Irish drama and Paul Valery. Jordan brings a continental sensibility to bear on his literary milieu.
