(British and Irish Poetry, Revised Edition)

James Clarence Mangan (MAN-gahn) is known primarily for his poetry and verse translations from more than twenty different languages, including Gaelic. However, he also wrote and translated witty, humorous prose works, articles, stories and essays, most of which appeared between 1832-1849 in different Irish periodicals, such as the Comet, Irish Penny Journal, Dublin University Magazine, Vindicator, Nation, and Irish Monthly Magazine. During the last year of his life, Mangan wrote a series of articles called “Sketches and Reminiscences of Irish Writers,” published in The Irishman.
