Description

Ocht n-aiste déag le Eoghan Ó hAnluain, ceann amháin acu ‘Creidim Fós’, i gcló anseo don chéad uair.  An chuid a scríobhadh sna seachtóidí agus sna hochtóidí is in Comhar agus Scríobh a foilsíodh a bhformhór agus is mar chaibidil i leabhair a foilsíodh formhór na bpíosaí sna nóchaidí agus ó chasadh an chéid.  Filltear sna haistí déanacha ar an triúr mórscríbhneoir a phléitear sna haistí tosaigh – An Cadhnach, An Direánach agus an Ríordánach. Cuir leo sin Seán Mac Mathúna, cúpla píosa ar fhilíocht an ochtú chéad déag – Merriman agus Mícheál Coimín, cúpla píosa ar Bhaile Átha Cliath – sa nualitríocht agus cuntas dírbheathaisnéiseach ar an iománaíocht – maraon le aistí ginearálta ar an nuafhilíocht, go háirithe ar thréimhse Eoghain mar eagarthóir ar Comhar, agus tá agat príomhthéamaí a chuid scríbhneoireachta. Cnuasaithe anseo freisin tá dosaen léirmheas leis agus gearrscéal grinn.

Bainfidh an dá chineál léitheora taitneamh as an rogha scríbhinní seo- iad siúd a léigh na haistí seo nuair a céadfoilsíodh iad agus iad siúd a léifidh den chéad uair iad agus spléachadh le fáil iontu ar thuairimí agus ar imeachtaí mar a facthas iad do scríbhneoir amháin a bhí i gcroílár na féile i dtréimhse leathchéad bliana nó mar sin.

Eighteen essays by Eoghan Ó hAnluain including ‘Creidim Fós’ published here as a collection for the first time. Many of these essays written in the 70’s and 80’s were published in Comhar and Scríobh, while those writen in the 90’s and since the turn of the century often appeared as chapters in books. Máirtín Ó Cadhain, Máirtín Ó Direáin, and Seán Ó Ríordáin are discussed in earlier essays and then   reappear again in more recent work. The eclectic mix of themes under discussion include Seán Mac Mathúna, a number of pieces on poetry of the eighteenth century – Merriman and Michéal Coimín, a few articles on Dublin – in contemporary literature and an autobiographical account on hurling, along with general essays on contemporary poetry influenced particularly by Eoghan’s time as editor of Comhar magazine, Also included are a number of reviews and a humorous short story.

Two different types of reader will get enjoyment out of this selection of essays: those who read the essays when they were first published, and those who will read them for the first time. The collection in its entirety provides a particular insight into views and events as they appeared to one writer at the heart of the action over a period of about 50 years.
