There has always been argument about whether Pearse's leadership of the Easter Rising in 1916 represented a failure or a triumph. Pearse, who found himself on Easter Monday proclaimed President of the Provisional Government and Commander-in-Chief of the Army of the Republic, took on himself the most bitter of roles at the finish: he was the first to make the move to surrender - and he was the first to be executed. In this re-issued major biography Ruth Dudley Edwards has placed Patrick Pearse in his historical, political and cultural context: she discusses his involvement with the Gaelic League, his role as a military leader in the nationalist movement and his claims as a socialist. Her account of his life does full justice to the story, recording its irony, absurdity and courage. This book will do much to arouse fresh interest in Patrick Pearse; it is sympathetic, balanced, meticulously researched, and above all highly readable.

On 24 April 1916, as President of the Provisional Government, Patrick Pearse appeared under the GPO Grand Portico on Dublin’s O’Connell Street and read aloud the Proclamation of the Irish Republic. Nine days later, he was the first of the rebel leaders to be executed. Pearse was born in Dublin on 11 November 1879, to an English father and an Irish mother. Considered the face of the 1916 Easter Rising, for many he was also its heart. In this definitive biography, using a wealth of primary sources, Dr Ruán O’Donnell establishes as never before the significance of Pearse’s activism all across Ireland, as well as his dual roles as Director of Military Operations for the Irish Volunteers and member of the clandestine Military Council of the IRB. On 3 May 1916, Pearse was executed in the Stonebreakers Yard at Kilmainham Gaol, at the age of thirty-six.

First published in 1935, this comprehensive account on what is known and unknown of the human body and human life more generally addresses the problems of the modern world, and offers paths to a better future. Like the rest of the work of Alexis Carrel (Nobel Prize for Medicine in 1912), Man, the Unknown is aimed at promoting a scientific vision of life and a society structured for the health and betterment of Man. Carrel himself earned a reputation as one of the first eugenists and 'scientific racists' in modern history, assisting in the implementation of Vichy France's eugenic policy during his later years. "To progress again, man must remake himself. And he cannot remake himself without suffering. For he is both the marble and the sculptor. In order to uncover his true visage, he must shatter his own substance with heavy blows of his hammer."

Translated from Irish by Joseph Campbell, Patrick Pearse's ten stories were first published between 1905 and 1916. Groundbreaking in Pearse's recourse to modern narrative techniques and his use of vernacular Irish, these stories provide a sympathetic portrayal of life in Connemara. Joseph Campbell translated them into English in the aftermath of the 1916 "Rising". His translations capture the spirit and tone of the original stories, largely because they are written in a distinctive form of Hiberno-Irish that reflects Pearse's use of colloquial speech.

Patrick Pearse, teacher, poet, and one of the executed leaders of the 1916 Rising has long been a central figure in Irish history. The book provides a radically new interpretation of Patrick Pearse’s work in education, and examines how his work as a teacher became a potent political device in pre-independent Ireland. The book provides a complete account of Pearse’s educational work at St. Enda’s school, Dublin where a number of insurgents such as William Pearse, Thomas McDonagh and Con Colbert taught. The author draws upon the recollections of past-pupils, employees, descendants of those who worked with Pearse, founders of schools inspired by his work - including the descendants of Thomas McSweeny and Louis Gavan Duffy – and a vast array or primary source material to provide a comprehensive account of life at St. Enda’s and the place of education within the ‘Irish-Ireland’ movement and the struggle for independence.

P.H. Pearse is one of the most contested figures in Irish history and, as an abstracted and abused icon, he has become increasingly detached from the writings and actions of the man. Despite his influence over twentieth-century Irish history and culture, Pearse has been under-studied in recent decades. This volume of essays redresses this academic imbalance and provides a long-overdue study. The Life and After-Life of P.H. Pearse brings together the work of an exciting range of leading contemporary scholars, such as Declan Kiberd, Joost Augusteijn, Angela Bourke and Thomas Hennessey. The book examines personal and family influences and reassesses Pearse as an educationalist, journalist, Irish language advocate, short story writer, radical thinker and political figure. The book revisits the life of Pearse with a view to his relevance to present day theories and teachings on history, language, literature and culture and presents a complete critical work in the lead up to the 100 year commemoration of his death.

This book provides the first complete account of Patrick Pearse's educational work at St. Enda's and St. Ita's schools (Dublin). Extensive use of first-hand accounts reveals Pearse as a humane, energetic teacher and a forward-looking and innovative educational thinker. Between 1903 and 1916 Pearse developed a new concept of schooling as an agency of radical pedagogical and social reform, later echoed by school founders such as Bertrand Russell. This placed him firmly within the tradition of radical educational thought as articulated by Paulo Freire and Henry Giroux. The book examines the tension between Pearse's work and his increasingly public profile as an advocate of physical force separatism and, by employing previously unknown accounts, questions the perception that he influenced his students to become active supporters of militant separatism. The book describes the later history of St. Enda's, revealing the ambivalence of post-independence administrations, and shows how Pearse's work, which has long been neglected by historians, has had a direct influence on a later generation of school founders up to the present.
