Summary

This is a distinctive book that examines the diversity and energy of writing in a period marked by the unparalleled global prominence of Irish culture. This collection provides a wide-ranging survey of fiction, poetry and drama over the last two decades, considering both well-established figures and also emerging writers who have received relatively little critical attention. Contributors explore the central developments within Irish culture and society that have transformed the writing and reading of identity, sexuality, history and gender. The book examines the impact of Mary Robinson's Presidency; growing cultural confidence "back home"; legislative reform on sexual and moral issues; the uneven effects generated by the resurgence of the Irish economy (the "Celtic Tiger" myth); Ireland's increasingly prominent role in Europe; and changing reputation. In its breadth and critical currency, this book will be of particular interest to academics and students working in the fields of literature, drama and cultural studies.

A valuable resource for both teachers and students." --George O'Brien, Professor of English, Georgetown University
