The Poetical Works of Robert Young, of Londonderry: Comprising Historical, Agricultural, and Miscellaneous Poems and Songs, With Copious Notes (Classic Reprint)
The Author, in coming before the Public with a revised and new edition of his Poetical Works, respectfully observes to his readers, that while he has been obliged from want of space to omit the insertion in it of some of his lyric and other poems which appeared in his three former publications (published respectively in the years 1832, 1840, and 1854), he has supplied their places with original pieces, and has also added a number of notes - historical, biographical, and statistical - thus rendering this volume far more valuable than any of his former works.
The present edition, as will be observed, comprises three divisions, viz.: - Historical, Agricultural, and Miscellaneous. The first, which is the principal division, brings before the reader, three of the most important epochs to be found in Irish history, namely - the conversion of the inhabitants of Ireland from Paganism to Christianity, in the fifth century: the invasion of the country by the English in the twelfth century: and the Revolution of 1688.
