Abstract

Although controversy has surrounded Postcolonial discourse, its impact on Irish studies has been uneven, with many writers and readers either embracing or rejecting it outright. This collection demonstrates the usefulness of a postcolonial mode of analysis by considering a number of comparative texts and moments. These essays, which appraise Ireland in relations to the Caribbean, the Orient, South Africa, and Zimbabwe, present an accessible and innovative survey of the field.
