Course description

This carefully structured course is a general introduction to critically reading some of Ireland’s best known literature in the context of a progressing Ireland and also focussing on the locations of the novels.

We will begin at the turn of the 20th century with Mayoman George Moore’s The Untilled Field, then proceed through the next century with James Joyce’s Dubliners, John McGahern’s Amongst Women, set in the midlands, and Pat McCabe’s The Butcher Boy as a representative of Ulster. We conclude with newer works in Claire Keegan’s Foster, set in Wexford, Ann Enright’s south-west in The Green Road, Eimear McBride’s west of Ireland background of A Girl is a Half-Formed Thing, and Galway’s Mary Costello who provides an Irish narrator in the New York setting of Academy Street.

By the end of the course, participants will have read and discussed a number of Ireland’s best-known authors and critically analysed their geographical settings and foundations. An exciting new course which would be ideal for the literary enthusiast or anyone preparing to study English at third level. Limited places
