By foregrounding the heroic ideal, it shows how the cultural landscape carved out by these writers is far from homogenous. Revising the prevailing critical view that there was a single logic of heroism which led inevitably to the Easter Rising, Carlyle's leadership fetish is transformed in the Irish context into a flexible model of heroic intervention in history. Ultimately, Heroic Revivals from Carlyle to Yeats shows that the self-consciously anti-modern Revival writers, engaging with a dynamic aesthetic of heroism, are in fact the architects of Irish modernity."--Publisher's website."@en ;
