It is a truth universally acknowledged that Ireland is a land of pastoral greenery, but its landscape is an arguably 'unnatural' construct, a topography shaped by a history of conflict and suffering. Gerry Smyth asserted in 2000 that 'Irish Studies and ecocriticism ... have a lot to say to each other', yet despite the centrality of the land to Irish identity at home and abroad, ecocriticism remains largely absent from Irish Studies in Ireland.

Allegory: Theories and Forms between Middle Age and Modernity

The notion of allegory is a pivotal one to understand Western literature, either the medieval one by which allegory was institutionalized within the four layers system of textual hermeneutics (literal, moral, allegorical, and anagogical), or in the modern texts which have been often interpreted, at least from Benjamin forward, as allegorical texts.
