Through close readings of texts by playwright Anne Devlin, poet Medbh McGuckian, and novelist Anna Burns, this book examines the ways Irish cultural production has been disturbed by partition. Ruprecht Fadem argues that literary texts address this tension through spectral, bordered metaphors and juxtapositions of the ancient and the contemporary.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"For readers and teachers less familiar with the politics and history of Northern Ireland, it offers context and overview from partition to the start of the Troubles, the Peace process, and the continuing fractures and tensions within Northern Irish communities. ... it offers in-depth studies of three current Northern Irish women writers who have found new ways to articulate the challenges of representation that Heaney recognized." (Michele Holmgren, ARIEL: A Review of International English Literature, Vol. 47 (1-2), January-April, 2016)
