John Hewitt and the Art of Writing

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Synopsis of the Book:
The decade between 1938 and 1948 has been characterised as a time of stagnation and isolation in Ireland. During these years, however, many Irish writers and artists travelled extensively across Europe, while a number of their English counterparts arrived in Ireland. Taking these journeys as a starting point, the essays collected here explore afresh the cultural history of the decade and the continuing impact of the events around and during WWII on Irish literature and culture.
