James H. Murphy
Explores the outlook of certain important classes in late 19th- and early 20th-century Ireland through an assessment of Irish Catholic fiction.
The late 19th and early 20th century was a key period of cultural transition in Ireland. Fiction was used in a plainly partisan or polemical fashion to advance changes in Irish society. Murphy explores the outlook of certain important social classes during this time frame through an assessment of Irish Catholic fiction. This highly original study provides a new context for understanding the works of canonical authors such as Joyce and George Moore by discussing them in light of the now almost forgotten writing from which they emerged—the several hundred novels that were written during the period, many of them by women writers.
