Charlotte Brooke's 'Reliques of Irish Poetry'

Edited by: Lesa Ni Mhunghaile

The editor presents new translations and analyses of the poems, songs and other writings in Irish translated by Charlotte Brooke in 1789. This publication marked one of the first interactions between the oral tradition in the Irish language and print culture in Ireland and is important in the wider context of the discovery of popular culture by the upper classes and an associated interest in antiquarianism, at a time when traditional popular culture was seen to be in retreat.
