Dr. Thomas Dillon Redshaw, Center for Irish Studies, is the editor of Well Dreams: Essays on John Montague (Creighton University Press). In the works since early 1998, this collection of 21 critical essays by American, Italian, English and Irish scholars surveys the accomplishments of the Irish poet John Montague. The book opens with an overview of Montague's evolving critical reputation and closes with an annotated checklist of Montague's publications. Well Dreams was launched April 19 at Creighton in commemoration of Montague's 75th birthday.

Redshaw also was editor of Paulette Myers-Rich's fine press edition of Glenmacnass (2003), by Irish poet Thomas Kinsella. The book was nominated for the Fine Press Award at the 16th annual Minnesota Book Awards. Myers-Rich's previous Traffic Street Press edition of Irish poet Evan Boland's Emigrant Letters (2002) was nominated for the same award in 2003. Six of these fine press editions have been designed and printed by Myers-Rich and published to commemorate the art of the Irish book. The project is supported by the Center for Irish Studies and the O'Shaughnessy-Frey Library Center's Department of Special Collections, curated by Ann Kenne.
