This volume explores the history of Irish writing between the Second World War (or the 'Emergency') in 1939 and the re-emergence of violence in Northern Ireland in the 1970s. It situates modern Irish writing within the contexts of cultural transition and transnational connection, often challenging pre-existing perceptions of Irish literature in this period as stagnant and mundane. While taking into account the grip of Irish censorship and cultural nationalism during the mid-twentieth century, these essays identify an Irish literary culture stimulated by international political horizons and fully responsive to changes in publishing, readership, and education. The book combines valuable cultural surveys with focussed discussions of key literary moments, and of individual authors such as Seán O'Faoláin, Samuel Beckett, Edna O'Brien, and John McGahern.

The years between 1880 and 1940 were a time of unprecedented literary production and political upheaval in Ireland. It is the era of the 1916 Easter Rising, the Irish Revival, and a time when many major Irish writers - Yeats, Joyce, Beckett, Lady Gregory - profoundly impacted Irish and World Literature. Recent research has uncovered new archives of previously neglected texts and authors. Organized according to multiple categories, ranging from single author to genre and theme, this volume allows readers to imagine multiple ways of re-mapping this crucial period. The book incorporates different, even competing, approaches and interpretations to reflect emerging trends and current debates in contemporary scholarship. As ongoing research in the field of Irish studies discovers new materials and critical strategies for interpreting them, our sense of Irish literary history during this period is constantly shifting. This volume seeks to capture the richness and complexity of the years 1880-1940 for our current moment.

This volume presents a way of reading the work of Kerry playwright John B. Keane. In it, Sister Marie Hubert Kealy focuses on the use of place as an interpretative device and suggests that sense of place can both situate the action of a drama and provide a context for examining social issues. Keane's works are well suited to such a focus because he has the gift of projecting universal human struggles into the characters and events of a specific region. An examination of the importance of John B. Keane in contemporary Irish literature cuts across the genres of drama, fiction, and non-fiction; however, Keane is best known as a playwright. His appreciation of place and his adapting the spirit of his own locale to the stage provides a way into the meaning of contemporary drama. His plays stand somewhere between the perceived traditions of rural Ireland and the inroads of the modern world. Keane's popularity results, at least in part, from his creation of characters native to his landscape, who embody both the cultural and emotional associations of the rural Irish and the universal conflicts between tradition and modernity. This study examines place as a key to meaning. It interprets the use of specific stage conventions as a signal of the cultural heritage of Ireland. Keane's use of regional characters, dialects, songs, and costumes - as well as the cottage setting - provides a frame for the playwright's view of Ireland, since he tends toward a critical examination of Irish life within the context of folklore and traditional values. Thus, sense of place, heightened by the selectivity of art, results in a way of seeing reality. The literary landscape creates a relationship between the artist and his audience based on their shared heritage. Although Keane employs traditional themes - the made-marriage, land, emigration - his angle of vision shifts the familiar motifs from the political interests of the early Abbey plays to a concern for the individual within the system. The same conventions that evoke the Kerry landscape also comprise a frame of reference for the thematic concerns of his plots. Traditional characters juxtaposed with contemporary issues result in the dual thrust of nostalgia and criticism that marks his plays. He attacks with laughter the narrowness of the institutions that constrict individuality, yet he expresses a nostalgia for the old ways that have disappeared. Such a dual vision is Keane's share of the satiric gift. John B. Keane speaks for and to his generation. His work is regional in the best sense. By drawing on the importance of place in Irish culture, Keane orders his perceptions of contemporary life. He deserves to be recognized as a playwright who expresses the struggle for individual identity against a background of cultural expectations.

As a consequence, national identity is not a fixed entity but must be understood in terms of specific cultural practices, the multiple narratives and symbolic forms through which we make sense of our lives. The author argues that this requires a rethinking of key concepts of tradition and modernity, race, gender, and class as they bear on an understanding of contemporary Ireland.

The successor to modern drama scholarship and criticism 1966-1980, the present volume is a classified, selective list of publications for the period 1981-1990, with many additions and corrections to the previous volume. It refines and supplements the series of annual bibliographies that Charles Carpenter compiled for the journal Modern Drama from 1982 to 1993. The work is designed both as a convenient checklist of significant scholarship on all aspects of world drama since Ibsen and as a bibliographical prTcis of the discipline as it has evolved since 1980. The great majority of its 25,200 entries concern literary currents in drama since the last third of the nineteenth century and the associated playwrights, although theatre history is also well represented. Because of the heightened interest in semiotic, anthropological, feminist, and other theoretical approaches to drama during the decade of the 1980s, the 'Contemporary Theory' section has been greatly expanded. The primary organization is geographic/linguistic; the main divisions are World Drama, then American, British and Irish, Canadian, Hispanic, French, Italian, Germanic, Scandinavian, Eastern European, African and West Indian, Australasian, and Asian drama. A name index is included. Although the bibliography is limited to material in Roman-alphabet languages, its scope, orientation, and format are designed to make the project internationally useful and intelligible.

Clowns are far more vital in modern Anglo-Irish than in English drama. Age-old clown types can be recognized, and slapstick techniques recur time and again. But the functions of these modern clowns differ markedly according to the dramatic intentions of the author. Low comic entertainment, affirmation, contrast and satire are major functions of the clown from Boucicault to O'Casey. Although supposedly typical of the contemporary period, the -tragicomic-, symbolic role found in Beckett proves to be an exception in Anglo-Irish drama."
