Literacy, Language and Reading in Nineteenth-Century Ireland
This volume explores the multiple forms and functions of reading and writing in nineteenth-century Ireland. It traces how understandings of literacy and language shaped national and transnational discourses of cultural identity, and the different reading communities produced by questions of language, religion, status, education and audience.
