Now in its first phase, the Thomas MacGreevy Archive makes available electronic versions of over 300 texts by and about Thomas MacGreevy (1893-1967), one of Ireland's earliest modernist poets and author of hundreds of articles of art criticism, books on contemporary writers and artists, and catalogs of the National Gallery of Ireland's collections. These electronic versions make MacGreevy's writings widely accessible to anyone with a computer and Internet connection, and also provide the ability to search across the various materials held in the archive, such as poems, art and film reviews, or books. The "How to use this site" section includes extensive help on methods of searching. Other good ways to approach the site are to start with the Bibliography, compiled by Susan Schreibman (the Browse button automatically takes you into the Bibliography) or the Encyclopedia, an annotated list of people and organizations with connections to MacGreevy. There is also an Image Gallery and Archive Connections, a large section indicating the locations of related MacGreevy resources (such as collections of his letters) and links to Web information on his contemporaries, including James Joyce, W.B. Yeats, and Ezra Pound.
