The Irish Short Story

After an introductory consideration of the oral tradition of Irish storytelling, this course traces the thematic concerns and technical developments of the Irish short story from 1830 to the present. It focuses especially on the most noted twentieth century practitioners of the short story in Ireland-O''Connor, O''Faolain, and O''Flaherty-but also gives close consideration to their precursors, their contemporaries, and their followers.
