The Anglo-Irish Novel (LIT2167.01)

Annabel Davis-Goff

The contribution to British literature by the politically powerful, Protestant, land owning, Anglo-Irish is substantial and important. We will read Maria Edgeworth, Elizabeth Bowen, and Somerville & Ross as representatives of the Ascendancy, as well as novels that reflect the political changes of the 1920s, and life, after Irish independence, for the descendants (actual and literary) of this formerly powerful section of Irish society. Students will write two essays.
