The Literature of Loss

Irish literature is filled with loss; the loss of love, of language, of sovereignty, of wealth, of health and of religion. The atmosphere of loss almost haunts the pages and words of the Irish, and leads to questions about the influence of loss, the representation of loss and the meaning of loss. Where does this loss fit in? How has it changed? What impact do chronological, political, economic and geographical changes have on loss?
