 About the Book 

Examining Irelands publishing history in the 20th century, this is a work of book history, an interdisciplinary approach which aims to reorient literary and historical interpretations by looking at the diverse and often surprising roles which publishers, printers, readers, governments and censors can play in the creation of textual culture. A collection of 12 essays by scholars in Irish studies, the text covers a range of topics including: the Irish Arts and Crafts book in the 1900s (Nicola Gordon Bowe)- Innovation and Reception in Irish Language Publishing in the 1900s (Niall O Ciosain)- Revising Irish Censorship (W. J. McCormack)- Becketts Early Career (John Pilling)- Derek Mahons Literary Archive (Steve Enniss)- and Seamus Heaneys Sweeneys Flight (Colleen McKenna). work should appeal to any reader with general or specific interests in Irelands cultural and literary history through a century which has seen two literary revivals, the Literary Revival of the 1900s, and the Northern Revival of more recent decades.
