Maeve Binchy's gave voice to humanity. She is gone at age 72 and Ireland has lost a treasure. Who is your favorite Irish writer. I am partial to William Butler Yeats. "Lake Isle of Innisfree" moves in me no matter how many times I have read it.
I really liked her writing. I like James Joyce (no, really ) I love The Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man. And Yeats' poetry is great. And I guess, I have to put Oscar Wilde into that category too. Unfortunately, I am not aware of many Irish writers who are still living
Really? I just read it here that Maeve Binchy, one of my favorite author died. I´m sorry about that. I have read all her books and they are all well written. Usually about the people and life in Ireland. What a loss!
I like James Joyce, William Butler Yeats and Oscar Wilde too. Frank Mc Court, an American with an Irish blood was also a great writer. He won the Pulitzer prize many years ago.
