Irish Culture and The People: Populism and its Discontents
This study argues that populism has been a shaping force in Irish literary culture. Synthesizing existing scholarship on populism, it explores how Irish texts have evoked 'The People'-a crucial rhetorical move for populist discourse-while also examining literary critiques of Irish populisms.
