Ireland, Literature, and the Coast


Nicholas Allen

  • The first volume of its kind to situate two centuries of Irish literature and art in coastal contexts
  • Presents new archival material, including books from Erskine Childers's sea library and the scrapbooks of Jack Yeats, to open readings of Irish literature and art to other coastal and maritime cultures and contexts
  • Establishes a realignment of Irish literary study away from land and towards the coast and the sea
