Routledge Studies in Irish Literature offers a range of theoretical perspectives, focusing in greater part on texts from the 20th and 21st centuries, and on a multi-racial, multi-cultural contemporary Irish society. This series makes full use of a range of contemporary theoretical perceptions, including deconstructive, psychoanalytic, ecocritical, translational, gender/feminist, cultural materialist, postmodern, new materialist, queer theoretical and presentist observations, offering genuinely fresh insights into Irish writing. Questioning issues of the canon, high and popular cultures and the traditionally historical orientations of Irish studies, this series uses theory to liberate new meanings in terms of Irish writing, society and culture, and to show how such writing has been, and continues to be, an agent of change in that culture.
