Molly Keane: centenary essays

EIBHEAR WALSHE & GWENDA YOUNG, editors

The 'Irish Big House' novelist, Molly Keane, was born in 1904, and in 2005 the Department of English at University College Cork will host an international conference. This book gathers these essays together to explore the writings of this important literary voice within twentieth-century Irish writing. Scholars of Irish literature from the US, Spain and Ireland presents perspectives on many aspects of her creative output, looking at a fascinating literary career which lasted from 1926 until 1993.

This book draws together contemporary critical perspectives on this unique voice in Irish writing, the subversive voice of the Big House novelist charting the end of her class and the immanent collapse of a literary genre.

Eibhear Walshe lectures in the department of Modern English, UCC and is the editor of Elizabeth Bowen remembered.
Gwenda Young is a lecturer in film studies, UCC. Her main research interest is American cinema, especially silent film.
