Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
A collection of Irish writer Seán O'Faoláin's correspondence and manuscript writings.
Seán O'Faoláin (1900-1991) was born John Francis Whelan in Cork City, Ireland. He is well known for his short stories, but also authored four novels, a memoir, and other non-fiction. His work (and his name change) was shaped by the renewed interest in Irish culture sparked by the Irish literary renaissance of the early twentieth century. O'Faoláin's first collection of stores was Midsummer Night Madness and Other Stories (1932) and his first novel was A Nest of Simple Folk (1933). O'Faoláin's Collected Stories were published in 1983.
