George William Russell, better known as Æ (1867-1935), mystic, poet, painter, journalist, editor, and practical rural economist, was a pivotal figure in the Irish literary revival and in the emergence of modern Ireland.
From the beginning of the twentieth century he formed life-long friendships with W. B. Yeats, George Moore, Lord Dunsany, James Stephens, Stephen Mackenna (translator of the Enneads of Plotinus), James Joyce, and other writers, thinkers, and artists, and was closely associated with the Irish National Theatre Society (later the Abbey Theatre). Russell`s influence was as extensive in practical and political affairs as it was in the more intimate spiritual domain. The length and breadth of his thinking on the social issues of his day, which are only heightened in ours, is evident in this present work.
This exhaustive and unsurpassed bibliography of the works of George William Russell, includes, in addition to a chronological listing of all his published written works, Notes on his Paintings and Portraits by Alan Denson, a Foreword by Padraic Colum, Reminiscences of Æ by M. J. Bonn, and a Note on Æ and Painting by Thomas Bodkin.
Of the compiler, Alan Denson, the late Oliver St John Gogarty wrote: `I do not know anyone who is better equipped to write about Æ.` Mr. Denson also edited The Letters of Æ (available again from Coracle Press).
