Hyland, P and Sammells, N (1991) Irish writing: exile and subversion. Palgrave Macmillan, London. ISBN 9780333525425
This is a collection of essays by international scholars which focuses on Irish writing in English from the 18th century to the present. The essays explore the recurrent motif of exile and the subversive potential of Irish writing in political, cultural and literary terms. Case-studies of major writers such as Swift, Steele, Wilde, Yeats, Shaw, Joyce, Beckett and Heaney are set alongside discussions of relatively unexplored writing such as radical pamphleteering in the age of the French Revolution, rhetorical constructions of the Great Famine, and the contribution of women writers to Nationalistic journalism.
