"This is an excellent volume of essays, which animates the topic of the politics of Irish writing in fresh and original ways. Its essays stage both important new readings of Irish classics and persuasive acts of cultural and literary retrieval. The diverse yet coherent nature of this collection enables dynamic interconnections between individual contributions. This work, by a new and impressively international generation of literary and cultural scholars, provides many illuminating leads for future studies."

"If interdisciplinarity is not to be taken merely as a buzz word, and if it may often be hard to develop in the context of a single institution or association, scholars need to work on building up networks in order to facilitate long-term cooperation and exchange of ideas. ... The Politics of Irish Writing, a result of an international project aimed at young literary scholars, quite eloquently demonstrates the potential of the up-and-coming generation of Irish studies scholars."
