EX LIBRARY.The Stories of Frank O'Connor is a 1952 short story collection by Frank O'Connor featuring both old and new stories.Although widely read in Western literature, Frank O?Connor?s (17 September 1903 ? 10 March 1966) literary character is most profoundly influenced by tensions within the literature and life of Ireland, ancient and modern. He was a dedicated student of the literature of Ireland?s native language, a keen observer of the life of the folk, intimately familiar with Ireland?s topography, and an active participant in its revolutionary and literary politics. These interests shaped his art. His literary vocation, however, like so many others of his generation, begins with Yeats?s literary nationalism and continues through a dialectic between his perceptions of that poet?s idealism and James Joyce?s early naturalism
