Irish Questions

Our next literature session is called Irish Questions. An extract from AN Wilson’s book The Victorians gives some context regarding the context of 19th Century British-Irish relations, as well as example of non-fiction historical prose through which we can consider the style and aspects of language such a text-type deploys.

We will read a short story by the 19th Century writer Rosa Mulholland which contains a narrative based on the same period and consequences of the issues described in Wilson’s book. I’ll talk a little bit about this writer during the session as I think she certainly deserves greater attention than she has generally received.

In addition, we will discuss two more short stories representing other aspects of Irish life and literature.
