This book is a response to the controversy surrounding the publication "The Field Day Anthology of Irish Writing in 1991". The essays in the collection examine concerns, such as the canonical status of writers, such as Joyce, Yeats and Beckett; how postcolonial theory and criticism have reshaped the boundaries of Irish Studies; and how women's writing has challenged canonicity as a concept.
