Summary "This volume interrogates the notion of a literary 'Renaissance' in Dublin, arguing that the associated cultural pursuits were already well developed in late-medieval Ireland. It covers new ground through detailed case studies of print and literature, providing quantitative analysis of print production in Ireland, as well as unique insights into the city's literary communities and considerations of literary genres that flourished there. The chapters address a wider range of topics than much of the existing scholarly literature, including English and European influences, the construction of Dublin literary identities, early modern reading habits and non-Anglophone contexts. The Renaissance in Dublin was marked by people, places and discourses that emerged and re-emerged with unexpected frequency, resulting in the cohesive view of the re-birth of literary activity in Dublin that is captured in this volume. Featuring contributions from leading scholars of early modern Ireland, including Raymond Gillespie, Alexander S. Wilkinson, Marie-Louise Coolahan and Andrew Hadfield, Dublin: Renaissance city of literature is an invaluable resource for understating the factors that contributed to the complex literary character of the city."-- Provided by publisher.
