A different story : the writings of Colm Tóibín by Eibhear Walshe( )

11 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 788 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Colm Tóibín published his first book in 1985 and in the three decades since has been a central voice within popular Irish cultural and intellectual discourse. Tóibín is one of the most widely-read and critically respected of Irish contemporary novelists, both in Europe and in North America, and his fictions have justly earned him an international reputation and an ever-growing popularity. His use of many literary forms; the newspaper essay, the travel book, the historical study, reviews, broadcasts, best-selling novels and short stories all attest to his crucial influence on Iri
Modern Ireland in 100 artworks by Fintan O'Toole( )

8 editions published in 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 616 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

100 artworks have been chosen for this beautifully illustrated book to represent each year from 1916-2015. They trace the story of Ireland's creative output from the revolutionary period until today. The story that emerges through these 100 works is not one of artists gradually finding their place of honour in the republic. Especially in the visual arts it is, on the contrary, a story of never-ending argument, of works that are disliked, rejected, fought over, even painted over. Instead of the artists supporting the state and the state supporting the artists, it is a case of the artists challenging and upsetting the community and the community looking warily at the artists. This is what makes Irish art, at its best, so edgy, so embattled and so vital. Most artists and writers featured have been profiled in the RIA's Dictionary of Irish Biography which outlines the lives at home and overseas of prominent men and women born in Ireland, north and south, and the noteworthy Irish careers of those born outside Ireland
Sex, nation, and dissent in Irish writing( Book )

13 editions published between 1995 and 1997 in English and held by 331 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The work of Irish lesbian and gay writers has received little sustained attention from critics and cultural theorists. This pioneering collection of essays sets out to examine the relationship between nationalism and sexual identity and argues that literary expressions of sexual dissidence in Ireland cannot be abstracted from Ireland's experience of colonization. The emergence of a nation state further complicated that relationship leading to an implicit reformation of hetero-sexuality within nationalist discourses

Representing the Troubles : texts and images, 1970-2000( Book )

5 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 179 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the second half of the twentieth century, Ireland experienced thirty years in which the political status of Northern Ireland was challenged by numerous acts of violence. Since the signing of the Good Friday/Belfast Agreement in 1998 it has been widely sensed that an era has passed in Irish history. Now seems accordingly an auspicious time to begin an assessment of how the period of the Troubles was represented in literature, theatre, film and television drama. This collection of essays considers representations of the Troubles in these varied genres and includes lectures given at the Royal Irish Academy by writers Glenn Patterson, Anne Devlin and Colm Toibin."--Jacket
Elizabeth Bowen( Book )

7 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in English and held by 171 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This collection of essays charts the creative life of one of the most important and successful novelists in the twentieth-century, the Anglo Irish writer, Elizabeth Bowen (1899-1973). Chapter by chapter, the study provides a comprehensive scholarly account of each of her ten novels, published between 1927 and 1969, as well as the short stories, family histories, travel writings and memoirs of this accomplished and critically respected modernist. This edited and chronologically structured collection provides a full account of Bowen's centrality as a major novelist in the traditions of twentieth-century cultural production, in modernist literature and, in particular, in theories of modern Irish writing. Recent critical work on Bowen's fictions has increased significantly and the present collection reflects this renewed interest in an outstanding writer."--Jacket
Kate O'Brien : a writing life by Eibhear Walshe( Book )

6 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 166 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Kate O'Brien (1897-1974) was one of the most important Irish writers of the twentieth century, widely read, accessible and popular in Britain, Ireland and the United States. She wrote for such respected literary journals as the Spectator, and the Irish Times; she broadcast regularly for the BBC and adapted her best-selling novels for the stage in London and on Broadway. One novel, That Lady, even became a Hollywood movie. She was a regular Book Club and Book Society choice, proof of her fame with the general reading public. In the course of a hugely productive writing life, Kate O'Brien travelled, lectured, produced novels, wrote literary essays, reviewed novels and was broadcast on the radio and on television." "In this new biography by Eibhear Walshe, he traces her life from Limerick, to Spain, America and London and argues that, in fact, Kate O'Brien was a subversive and a pioneer for women's writing. She created novels that were deceptively traditional in form but radical in content and thus invented a literary identity for her own Irish bourgeois class and a successfully realized fictive independence and viability for her young Irish female protagonists. Proud of her Irish middle-class origins, she was, nevertheless, antagonistic to the insular moral codes and the censorship laws of the newly emergent Irish state. Out of these contradictions, her fascinating and powerful novels were created and, as a result, her books still draw a wide readership. Drawing on original research and extensive archival sources, this biography traces the life and the writings of the most important novelist of the Irish middle class."--Jacket
