Two essays on Romantic Ireland

Dr Alison O'Malley-Younger has published two essays in Romantic Ireland: From Tone to Gonne; Fresh Perspectives on Nineteenth-Century Ireland (Cambridge Scholars, 2013). Bringing together an international line-up of established and emerging scholars, the collection (edited by Paddy Lyons, John Miller and Willy Maley) takes Irish Studies in new directions, by exploring the work of less well-known but hugely significant writers whose work has been neglected or overlooked, as well as the major figures of the period, from Edgeworth and Moore to Yeats and Synge. Alison's essays are entitled '"Lowering the Tone": Wolfe Tone in 1898 - commemoration and commodification', and '"Posing Paddy for Empire": Dion Boucicault Staging the Oirish'.
