Nineteenth and Twentieth Century Irish Tensions

Irish Folklore in the Poetry of William Butler Yeats
A 10 page emphasis that Yeats' work is important not just from an entertainment perspective but also from the perspective that it preserved a critical chapter in Irish history. Many of his poems capture the spirit of Ireland, the richness of the folklore and the old wives tales as well as the soul of the quest for Irish independence. The author of the paper uses "Come Gather Round Me, Parnellites" and "Sailing to Byzantium" to illustrate this point. Bibliography lists 5 sources.
Researching Family History
A 5 page paper describing the family history of an American family of Irish and British heritage. The living Conners know that their paternal grandfather's grandfather, Michael O'Connor, arrived in New York from Ireland some time shortly after the end of the Civil War; they know that the root of their mother's side of the family already was in Tennessee before the land came to be known as Tennessee. The family is as firmly rooted in East Tennessee as are the Great Smoky Mountains that lend their shadow to the valley where the Conner family grew and developed. Bibliography lists 8 sources.
Ireland's Version of Masefield's 'Sea Fever' and Barnby's Setting Of Tennyson's 'Crossing The Bar'
5 pages in length. Understanding the greater meaning behind traditional songs of the sea enables one to gain a significantly better perspective of just how powerful the ocean's presence is in some people's lives. To those who live and breathe by the sea, her swelling waves and wafting salt air reflect a world still unknown to man yet comforting nonetheless. When Tennyson's Crossing the Bar and Masefield's Sea Fever were put to music by Barnby and Ireland, respectively, the already absorbing and intimate meanings beheld by the poems took on an even greater sense of emotion with each man's haunting melody, clearly expanding the meaning of the words. Bibliography lists 10 sources.
