Benatti, Francesca (2008). Land and landscape in the Dublin Penny Journal, 1832-1833. In: Hooper, Glenn and Ní Bhroiméil, Úna eds. Land and Landscape in Nineteenth-Century Ireland. Nineteenth-Century Ireland Series. Dublin: Four Courts Press, pp. 13–24.



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.
