Nationalism and Internationalism: Irish Modernist Poetry of the Interwar Years

Monday, September 25, 2017 - 3:11pm
NEMLA 2018
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 30, 2017

The interwar years (1918-1939) were a turbulent time in Ireland. With the aftermath of the 1916 Easter Rising, the Irish Civil War and the formation of the Irish Free State in 1922, Ireland was a nation in upheaval and at war with itself. The symbiotic relationship between the formation of the Irish Free State and the poetry that was produced during the interwar period is of particular if sometimes neglected importance to the canon of Irish Modernism. This panel discussion invites participants to look more deeply at the body of work that came at the end of the Irish Literary Revival and led to the formation of Irish Modernism.
