About this product
- DescriptionThe images in this book tell the remarkable and unique story of Patrick Pearse, the leader of the 1916 Rising. They trace the story of his life from his childhood through to his various incarnations as barrister, writer, teacher and rebel. Pearse grew up living over his father's sculpture yard and this created an appreciation and love of beautiful things. His deep awareness of the power of spectacle and images pervaded everything he did. This is reflected in the striking photographs in this book. These include stunning views of Scoil Eanna, the radical and experimental school he ran in the Dublin Mountains. It can also be seen in the spectacular heroic-themed plays and pageants he wrote and produced. Gathered together for the first time, this collection of images and photographs offers a unique insight into one of the most significant figures in 20th century Irish history.
