Christina Hunt Mahony

Published by Carysfort Press

Barry is recognized as one of Ireland's greatest living writers and his works now appear regularly on syllabuses in US colleges in Irish Studies and in Drama departments

This book, edited by Christina Hunt Mahony, presents twelve essays that trace the development of the writer's career and the individual achievement of his works, concentrating largely, but not exclusively, on the plays

The essays address Barry's engagement with the contemporary cultural debate in Ireland and also with issues that inform postcolonial critical theory
