Archives and Special Collections: Highlighting Selected Irish Authors/Poets

Archives and Special Collections is a repository for materials contained in a variety of formats: books, manuscripts, correspondence, journals, photographs, posters, maps, original drawings, theatre programs, archival documents, and other materials.

Highlighting Selected Irish Authors/Poets

Welcome to the LIU Post Library's rare book holdings of Irish contemporary poets. We are indebted to the generosity of the late Winthrop Palmer who has made this possible. Mrs. Palmer most especially desired the library to develop its collection in the areas of poetry and Irish and French literatures. The Archives and Special Collections Department of the library has adhered to this initial focus.

This catalog is concerned with the writings, including translations, of almost 100 contemporary Irish men and women who are primarily poets. Whenever these writers produce a work in another format it is so noted within brackets. A poet is "contemporary" whose works are published inclusively, or almost so, during the second half of the 20th Century. Translations are arranged after the poet's original works, and collaborations are so noted.

The writings of these poets found in various Anthologies and Collections and Periodicals are available on supplementary lists.

The Winthrop Palmer Irish Literature Collection is expanding as a result of ongoing purchases and donations. We welcome your comments and questions.
