Gogarty, Oliver St. John, et al. Secret Springs of Dublin So...





Gogarty, Oliver St. John, et al. Secret Springs of Dublin Song. Dublin: The Talbot Press. London: Fisher Unwin, 1918. First edition. Cloth. Edition limited to 500 numbered copies (No. 403). Untrimmed. Wear to heel of spine. Vg. The contributors to this book of parodies have never been fully elucidated. Gogarty certainly was one; others may include Susan Mitchell and George Russell (AE). Those parodied include virtually all the Irish poets of the time, notably Yeats. Gogarty began his literary life by sharing a tower in Sandymount with James Joyce, and featured thereafter in 'Ulysses' as the model for Buck Mulligan. His own writing never quite lived up to that connection, but his memoirs and the best of his poems remain significant and readable.
