But it was the history of Ireland, not England, that Standish James O'Grady turned "into a kind of Iliad, almost perhaps into a kind of Bible. O'Grady History of Ireland was published in two volumes in 1878 and 1880, and those volumes became the Bible of the Irish writers of the next several decades. In fact, O'Grady's stature was so great in the following decades that he was called the Father of the Irish Literary Revival. Of him, W. B. Yeats wrote: I think it was his 'History of Ireland, Heroic Period,' that started us all.

Standish James O’Grady, historical novelist and literary historian whose popular English versions of the Irish heroic sagas earned him the title of father of the Irish literary revival. O’Grady graduated from Trinity College, Dublin, in 1868. Introduced to the ancient heroic and romantic. In 1878 he published History of Ireland: The Heroic Period; this work was followed in 1880 by History of Ireland: Cuculain and His Contemporaries. O’Grady’s versions of Irish epics have great narrative vigour and imaginative power and had a profound influence on Yeats and other writers of the Irish literary renaissance at the turn of the century.

Portrait of Standish James O’Grady, 1904, by John Butler Yeats. National Gallery of Ireland. M&ARL has recently acquired the literary papers of the Irish author, journalist and historian Standish James O’Grady. A former Trinity student, O’Grady is often referred to as the ‘father of the Irish Literary Renaissance’. The remainder were published by Edward O’Hagan with UCD Press: To the Leaders of Our Working People (2002) and Sun and Wind (2004). O’Grady’s practice was to paste newspaper columns to pages torn from a ledger book.

Edward A. Hagan describes O'Grady as ""at once a political polemicist, a creative writer, and a somewhat unusual historian,"" involved in all three roles in this utopian treatise which ""reveals the pervasive influence of classical scholarship upon the Irish intellectual life of the period."" O'Grady argues for drastic change in Ireland in the first part and in the second makes extensive use of classical Greece as a model for Ireland. Some parts of it were published as journal articles in his lifetime, but most are published here for the first time.
