It breaks new ground in its comparative framework and in exploring texts that deserve more serious critical attention than they have received and which deal with subjects that have been previously absent from or marginalized in Welsh and Irish literary fiction in English." "The writing discussed approaches topics such as identity, sexuality, gender, family and nation in new and exciting ways. This pioneering, accessible study will therefore be useful to students of literature and to students interested in women's studies, gender studies and cultural studies." "Its vigorous interpretations of a wide range of texts within their cultural contexts provide innovative and refreshing perspectives on themes that are at the heart of Welsh, Irish and Celtic studies."--book jacket." ;
