Displacement and the yearning for home has long been a feature of Irish literature. Engaging with prose, drama and poetry, this course will explore the theme of exile in twentieth-century Irish writing. Different forms and understandings of exile will be charted in selected texts, including the plight of the Irish emigrant, the ‘culchie’ in Dublin and the marginalisation of women in Irish society. A particular focus will be the experience of Protestants in independent Ireland.  Lectures take place the seminar room of the National Library on Kildare Street.
