This essay focuses on how the themes of land and landscape were represented in a nineteenth-century Irish popular periodical, the Dublin Penny Journal, through the articles of its two editors, George Petrie and Caesar Otway. It examines how the authors provided their readers with a framework for interpreting Ireland and Irish identity, and how they attempted to reconcile their cultural goals with the commercial goals of a periodical publication.
