Irish Literature in Transition tracks patterns of transmission and transformation between and across the centuries of Irish literature, from 1700 to the present. Adopting varying frames and scales of reference, the series offers an original map of a territory too often navigated via the narrow channels of political history. Each of the six volumes revises our understanding of established issues and texts and, simultaneously, introduces new questions, approaches, and authors. The series as a whole generates alternative genealogies across time and space, creating a new and dynamic version of literary history while highlighting the significance of change as a lived, felt force.
