Summary:
Women's literary expressions of war have long been neglected and at times forgotten in Irish scholarship. This book brings many of these forgotten women, and their writings from the 1880-1922 period, to the fore. The women themselves are revealed as active cultural producers and agents, deeply invested in the political and military struggles of their day. From the Land Wars to the Boer Wars, from the First World War to the Easter Rising, the War of Independence and the Civil War, the diverse range of topics in this thought-provoking volume explore the relationship between women and conflict. -- Publisher description
