0 Reviews
Examining the work of leading contemporary Irish writers -- including Roddy Doyle (who is interviewed in the book), Dermot Bolger, Patrick McCabe and Deidre Madden -- Smyth analyses the relevance of post-colonial theory in Irish literature, and the links between literature and wider cultural and political developments. The book looks at the issues which surround the emergence of the Irish novel in the late eighteenth century, and also at the ways that modern writers challenge the established notions of Irish fiction.
