Contemporary Irish Writers

"Carraroe" by Gráinne Dowling

Series editor: Anne Fogarty, University College Dublin,

Irish Studies is currently being vigorously rethought, not only in connection to major figures such as James Joyce, W. B. Yeats, Eva Gore-Booth, Flann O'Brien, Samuel Beckett, Elizabeth Bowen, and Mary Lavin but also within a larger framework, with particular attention to feminist issues, the environmental humanities, the perspectives of migrants in Irish society, nationalism and transnationalism, Northern Ireland and its writers, the Irish language, and the lively and often genre-crossing fiction, poetry, drama, and film of contemporary Ireland.

This series brings theoretically informed perspectives to a consideration of the work and lives of Irish writers. The volumes provide general discussions of interpretive issues and offer varied strategies for understanding them, with the intention of appealing to an informed audience--advanced undergraduates, graduate students, and general readers as well as scholars of Irish literature and culture.
