Erin Go .... Books?
(This will be much better if you read it with an Irish accent).
Top o' the mornin' to ye, me hearties.
In honor of St. Patty's Day, Word Nerd wishes you the luck of the Irish and Erin Go Bragh and all those green sentiments.
And to send up her tribute to this holiday, Word Nerd is offering up book titles and poems in celebration, written about Ireland or by the Irish.
Word Nerd cannot forget to mention William Butler Yeats, her favorite Irish poet since she was a wee bairn (ok, since senior year of high school English, but close enough...)
Other Irish titles include:
How the Irish Saved Civilization, by Thomas Cahill (non-fiction)
1916 and 1921, by Morgan Llywelyn (fiction)
Patrick, by Stephen R. Lawhead (fiction)
Portrait of an Artist as a Young Man, James Joyce (Irish author)
Angela's Ashes, Frank McCourt (Irish author)
The Artemis Fowl series and The Supernaturalist, by Eoin Colfer, (Irish author)
