Focusing on several distinct genres of eighteenth-century Irish song, Henigan demonstrates in each case that the interaction between the elite and vernacular, the written and oral, is pervasive and characteristic of the Irish song tradition to the present day.

About the Series

Poetry and Song in the Age of Revolution

The series examines how these two intimately related genres were used to explore and disseminate new political ideas in a period of Enlightenment, Romanticism, and Revolution.

Scholars working within the disciplines of English, history, music, Celtic studies, and politics will find the series of interest, as will researchers whose wider concerns pertain to cultural history, anthropology and the history of philosophy, communication, and linguistics.
