Summary Building on the long-standing image of Paris as the "Capital of the Nineteenth Century" and the "Capital of Modernity," this book examines the city's place in the imagination of Irish women writers in the long nineteenth century. By reasserting the centrality of Paris, this book draws connections between Irish and European writers, expanding the map of Irish Studies and forging new points of contact between Irish literature and canonical figures like Goethe, Balzac, and Zola through the shared interest in the socio-economic development of modernity.
