THE UNAPPEASABLE HOST.
Edition: First printing, a trade paperback, issued simultaneously with hardcover.
Dublin: University College, (1998). First edition - A collection of 16 essays, "each and all marked by a vast knowledge of Ireland and its writers, by penetrating insights, and perceptive analysis." They reveal "how Anglo-Irish writers founded modern Irish literature in English, identifying themselves with their native country and its people. Yet they often felt themselves surrounded and watched by an 'Unappeasable Host,' a population that resented them." Among the topics and authors covered are the colonial novel and works by Maria Edgeworth, Sheridan Le Fanu, Yeats, Synge, James Joyce, and Elizabeth Bowen among others. Bibliography, index, 380 pp. ISBN: 1-90062107X.
