We will read poetry, short fiction, and plays throughout the semester, as well as critical writings and short primary historical documents. The literature will be read with reference to Irish history, culture, and politics as both inspiration and subject matter. We will also explore how the literature contributes to an Irish identity. We will examine Irish literature as a distinct national literature. Prerequisite or co-requisite: ENGL110G: College Composition I. (Fulfills English or Humanities requirement.) Spring semester
