More About Alice Curtayne

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Alice Curtayne was born in 1901 at Tralee, Co. Kerry. She received her education in England and Italy. A hagiologist, she grew up with no ambition to write, but became infatuated enough with St. Catherine of Siena s letters to the reigning Pope to study in depth about the saint and compile notes for years. After being told she should write about the saint, she eventually found the time to do so and published St. Catherine of Siena in 1929. She went on to write several other notable books, including A Recall to Dante, The Catholic Literary Revival, St. Brigid of Ireland, and The Irish Story. Alice Curtayne died in 1981.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
I read this book when I was ten years old; and I remember feeling sad when it ended. My mother was from Ireland and my father was American Irish, thus the saints were a part of our family life. In those days most of the stories of saints were of bigger-than-life characters from Italy, Spain or France. Awareness of the Irish saints was hard to find.
After I read the book, and reported to my fifth grade class, each of my parents read it: they shared a similar delight.

I have read my book many times over the past fifty years. I was delighted to find this new issue in bookstores. As a teacher I often read the stories to my classes, even at the university level, because they are so rich in cultivating a sense of history and imagination. These are not rich in historical detail, but set the heart afire with the special use of folklore. While some may see these tales as childish, I would disagree. These are charming tales that folks of any age, particularly the Irish, will enjoy, and enjoy, and enjoy.

Great for 3rd - 5th grade boys of Irish identity  Oct 8, 2005
This book would be good for building up the pride of especially Irish American boys. While there is one 9 page chapter on St. Brigid out of this 20 chapter 178 page book, most are of Irish priests who went sailing elsewhere as missionaries or who dealt with scary situations. The writing is not particularly good, though it is not bad writing. The version I read was published in 1955. I have found that a number of books on saints written before Vatican II were not written as well as those written after Vatican II, though I do not know the reason for that. Maybe before Vatican II reading books on saints was more popular, so the writing did not have to have the same quality for selling as those written after that time. There are very few pictures in this book and the ones which are there are black and white, so the child would need to be of an age where pictures are not important.
This book includes stories on the following saints:
Adamnan.......Benignus.......Brendan.......Brigid.......Canice.......Ciaran.......Colman of Kilmacduagh.......Colman-Elo.......Columbanus.......Columcille.......Cormac.......Finbarr.......Finnian.......Flannan.......Gall.......Laurence O'Toole.......Modomnoc.......Patrick.......Thaddeus MacCarthy.......The monk who heard the bird sing for 150 years.
