Editorial Review:

Product Description:

Exploring two centuries of Irish women's writing, contributors from Ireland and the United States show how these women have struggled against both colonialism and their own patriarchal nation.

Writing in the shadows of Joyce and Yeats, Irish women have long contributed to the ongoing formation of Irish identities. Border Crossings secures for a largely overlooked body of writing its place in the Irish literary canon. 

Ranging from consideration of early writers such as Maria Edgeworth and Sydney Owenson to recent feminist pamphlet wars. Border Crossings explores the connections between personal and national identities, politics and literary style, and gender and artistic vocation. Some essays focus on prominent writers such as Augusta Gregory and Eavan Boland, and others introduce readers to lesser-known voices such as Emily Lawless and Mary Beckett. Some also show how groups of women, such as upper-middle-class Catholics and lesbians, have used their writing to construct social goals. All help to revise the perception of historical and contemporary roles Irish women writers have played in shaping--and being shaped by--Irish history.

By surveying writers of poetry, fiction, drama, and even pamphlets, Border Crossings demonstrates the breadth and vitality of Irish women's writing. It shows that today's Irish women writers have significant foremothers, and more of them than we usually think.
