The Irish Review published by Cork University Press
Our archive series continues with selections from issues 7 and 8 of The Irish Review. As the 1980s came to end new agendas began to take shape. Richard Kearney’s essay on postmodern fiction looked beyond Ireland to understand the drift of western culture. Cairns Craig, meanwhile, tested the temperature of Scottish nationalism at the turn of the decade in an essay which is prescient about the dilemmas facing devolutionary nationalism in Scotland today.
