We will begin in the 20th century with short stories by James Plunkett, Flann O’Brien’s At Swim Two Birds and Edna O’Brien’s The Country Girls. We take in John Banville’s The Book of Evidence and then move to contemporary literature through Mike McCormack’s Solar Bones, Claire-Louise Bennett’s Pond, Sara Baume’s Spill Simmer Falter Wither and Sally Rooney’s Normal People. By the end of the course, participants will have read and discussed a number of Ireland’s authors and critically analysed their themes.
