ENG 300 7 - Slouching Towards Empire: The Literary Politics of Ireland


This course will introduce students to the wealth of 20th- and 21SI-century literature from the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland. This course will ask students to understand contemporary (and some modern) Irish literature and how it responds to, reflects, and reshapes the politics of Ireland. When they travel, they will see the places and people they have read about, visit cities and towns that formed settings for fiction and poetry, see the stages where the plays they read were first performed, and experience the ways in which Irish people on both sides of the border see literature as vital to their culture and self-understanding. Group III Humanities/Literature.
