OverviewThis module examines the practices of writing in Irish in Ireland between 1600 and 1660. In particular it will focus on the reactions of the native Irish community to economic and political change over this period and the impact that this had on a number of literary genres. Reading a number of works centering on Pairlement Chloinne Tomáis, but also paying attention to poetry and the writing of history, this module will provide an insight into how literary texts can reflect the society in which they were created.
