This book examines the interconnections between nationalism and sexuality in Edna O'Brien's writing. The work explores the links between Irishness and sexual reproduction that define women as good Irish citizens, exposes the dysfunctions with rural communities that strive to contain women with limited roles and rewrites them to offer her female characters increased agency.
