11 Flanagan Laurence. (Compiler) Irish Women's Letters.
England Sutton Publishing. 1997 First Edition Hardcover Very Good Very Good 
Foreward by Edna O'Brien.This inspiring anthology presents a wide-ranging selection of Irish women's letters, from that of St.Brigid, who founded a renowned monastry in the fifth century, up to the late twentieth century. These letters, intimate and personal, and written by women from every sonceivable background- the big houses of the Anglo-Irish gentry, small farms scattered throughout the Irish countryside, urban slums, middle class houses in cities, and Irish emigrants abroad- offer us an unusual insight into the reality of Irish women's lives throught the centuries, the concerns they felt, their thoughts on art and politics, and their love for both kin and country. Expressing pathos, and sometimes despair, the letters also show an often indomitable humour.
