Abstract

An invitation to review Heather Ingman’s Kristevan study of Irish women’s twentieth century fiction sparked these thoughts on how theory influences understanding, in this case, of Irish politics, literature and gender. Intersectionality theory, combined with insights from Irish postcolonial studies, is used to indicate some critical implications of how a reading of ‘gender’ and ‘nationalism’ shapes literary interpretation.
