If you travel to Ireland, you will undoubtedly be aware of the rich literary tradition of the country. Almost everywhere you go, references to Irish writers such as James Joyce, Oscar Wilde, and George Bernard Shaw. And even today it seems that the writing is more telling the story than anyone else-whether in writing or chatting through the pub.
So, if a trip to The Emerald Isle is on the agenda, it's almost compulsory to write some books in Ireland to read their trips. But what should you read if Joyce's "Ulysses" is not the cup of tea? Here's a set of novels that will bring you the length and breadth of Ireland and give you a real taste of life in this country, filled with passion and history.
Brendan O & # 39; The Mammy & # 39; Carroll
To learn more about Dublin in the 1960s, this story of Agnes Browne's widow and seven children will do it. This is all the working-class Ireland's whims, laughter and alcohol content, and the best thing is that the book is the first of the trilogy. Next time, a cheerful boy in Dublin (and many others) approaching him, he can find herself to rethink Agnes and her nests. Gene Kerrigan
"Little Criminals" And now in Dublin in contemporary times. The country was an economic miracle, and everyone was entrepreneur, even criminals. Frankie Crowe has a system to make money, with the intention of kidnapping a wealthy banker and getting alive. While this is just a novel for cops and robbers, Kerrigan has a lot to say about the Dublin life and the social changes that have occurred in recent years. Julian Gough Juno and Juliet
If you decide to go to Galway (and I'm very encouraged to do so) then this novel is one of the few that are there. This is the story of the same twin in their first year at the university to adapt to life in the city, drink at the bar, and occasionally attend classes. This is an age-old story in which Galway himself is the protagonist. Sebastian Barry
"Situation of Eneas McNulty": The tensions surrounding the Iranian independence struggle The heart of this novel is located in Sligo, Northwestern Ireland. They have not found a job, Eneas joins the British-led police, the Royal Irish Police, and in this process classifies himself as a traitor. As a nominee, he runs in the race, and while the novel follows Enea from country to country, he backs back to Sligo whenever he can. An interesting glimpse of 20th-century Ireland, through a player who became the victim of his country's struggle. [1959-19004] Mehran Marsha "Pomegranate soup"
This novel is a different kind of migration – the story of three Iranian sisters who move to the Irish village in the 1980's. It does not often get a food-lit story in Ireland, but Pomegranate Soup is just this, the celebration of Persian cuisine. It is not surprising that rural residents will take some time to adapt to this foreign influence in one of their local cafes, and despite the fact that the novel focuses on another culture, it offers a wealth of details about Ireland's life and landscape for those who want more to know country.
There are many stereotypes about the writings, but as a traveler, you have the opportunity to go beyond the surface of Irish culture and see what lies beneath it. Reading Irish books will help to uncover the details of Ireland's streets and cities, hopes and history – and when you visit those places, you will feel as if you know a little bit more than if you were a stranger.
