About the Authors
  • The years between 1780 and 1830 are vital decades in the history of Irish writing in English. This book charts the confluence of Enlightenment, antiquarian, and romantic energies within Irish literary culture and shows how different writers and genres absorbed, dispersed and remade those interests during five decades of political change. During those same years, literature made its own history. By the 1840s, Irish writing formed a recognizable body of work, which later generations would draw on, quote, anthologize and dispute. Questions raised by novels, poems and plays of the late eighteenth- and early nineteenth-century — the politics of language and voice; the relationship between literature and locality; the possibility of literature as a profession — resonated for many Irish writers over the centuries that followed and continue to matter today. This comprehensive volume will be a key reference for scholars and students of Irish literature and romantic literary studies.

    • Features a combination of historical, thematic, and author-based chapters
    • Will help readers locate Irish literature within a global historical context
    • The first account of the emergence of modern Irish literature as a distinct cultural category
