This critical work examines contemporary writing in Irish against a background of cultural displacement. Within a post-colonial framework, the author considers the impact of colonialism and conquest on literary content and on the critical treatment it has received heretofore. Displacement, peripherality and minoritisation need not, she argues, herald the end of a vibrant living literature.

This book assesses the impact of the literary undertakings of the language revival movement and the critcal assessments which accompanied it.
