An Béal Bocht by Brian O'Nolan

£9.99
DESCRIPTION

Widely regarded as one of the greatest Irish-language novels of the 20th century, 'An Beal Bocht' is a classic satire in Irish by one of the century's great writers, Myles na gCopaleen/Flann O'Brien/Brian O'Nolan. This extremely funny book, with its rain-sodden peasants of Corca Dorcha who combine pretensions to proficiency in English with true caint na ndaoine in the hope of impressing the insatiable Irish-language enthusiasts, was the proof that the Irish of the Revival had come of age.

It earned Flann O'Brien the accolade bestowed upon him by Austin Clarke: `our Gaelic satirist' and is still a useful corrective against the native tendency to take things too seriously. As its subtitle An Milleanach indicates, it satirises Tomas O Criomhthain's famous Blasket autobiography 'An t-Oileanach' as well as other Gaeltacht works like 'Caisleain Oir' by Donegal writer Seamus O Grianna (Maire).
