Irish Wit

Religion, the Law, Literature, Love, Drink, Wisdom and Proverbs

by Sean McCann

Paperback / softback Publication Date: 01/08/2001

 
Irish wit is an art form, centuries old yet up-to-the-minute wise, insulting, obscure, profound and idiotic. For years the Irish have mixed wit with wisdom -- as they have porter with whiskey -- and to the same intoxicating effect In this book, Sean McCann has succeeded in distilling the essence of Irish wit -- on love, religion, the hard stuff, the English -- with a generous mix from Behan, Yeats, Swift, Moore, O'Casey, but above all from yer man, the leading authority on everything that grows, breeds, breathes, thinks or computes in the land.
