Description

Leabhar ar leith é seo, é níos mó agus níos cuimsithí ná an chéad eagrán a foilsíodh i 1990, agus a ghnóthaigh iomrá ag an am. Ar leibhéal amháin, is cnuasach é de na céadta sleachta gairide as litríocht na Gaeilge – scothshamplaí de smaointe, den fhilíocht, de nathanna, agus de rudaí fiúntacha – a cumadh ó cuireadh peann Éireannach le pár i gcéaduair sa séú céad. Pléitear ceisteanna iontu: mar shampla, meon an phobail sa saol Gaelach i leith na cléire, ról na gcineálacha éagsúla amhrán mar ábhar meanma agus misnigh i measc aicmí éagsúla den phobal, an náisiúntacht vs an náisiúnachas, tábhacht agus todhchaí na Gaeltachta, na trí mhórchúis a thug cúlú na Gaeilge sa naoú céad déag. Tá innéacs nua cuimsitheach ginearálta leis an eagrán seo a chuireann go mór lena fhiúntas.

Croí Cine is a unique anthology of writing that provides a comprehensive and wide-ranging introduction to Irish-language writing, which extends from the 1600s to the end of the 20th century.

Meticulously selected by Seán de Fréine, the new edition, published in 2019 by Cló Iar-Chonnacht, is even more comprehensive than the first edition, which was published in 1990 to widespread acclaim. One one level Croí Cine is a collection of hundreds of short excerpts from Irish-language literature, which features some of the best examples of poetry, sayings and opinion writing in Irish across hundreds of years.

These excerpts shine a light on topics like the view of the community towards the clergy, the role of various different types of songs as sources of good humour and courage in different sections of society, nationality versus nationalism, the importance of the Gaeltacht and its future, the three major reasons for the ebb of the Irish-language in the 19th century and other topics.
