Inventing Ireland : The Literature of a Modern Nation by Declan Kiberd

16.45

Kiberd – one of Ireland’s leading critics and a central figure in the FIELD DAY group with Brian Friel, Seamus Deane and the actor Stephen Rea – argues that the Irish Literary Revival of the 1890-1922 period embodied a spirit and a revolutionary, generous vision of Irishness that is still relevant to post-colonial Ireland. This is the perspective from which he views Irish culture. His history of Irish writing covers Yeats, Lady Gregory, Synge, O’Casey, Joyce, Beckett, Flann O’Brien, Elizabeth Bowen, Heaney, Friel and younger writers down to Roddy Doyle.
