About this book


During the past twenty-five years, Ireland has seen an explosion of women's fiction - hundreds of published works that reimagine the inherited literary traditions and the social contexts of women's lives. Changing Ireland examines women's use of historical fiction, exile literature, Northern war narratives, speculative fiction, and classic 'realism', and looks at the local Irish forms of international women's genres like the romance novel and feminist fiction.
