This public lecture takes its title from the visionary work of literary criticism published in 1916 by Thomas MacDonagh, UCD lecturer in English as well as political activist, poet and playwright. 50 years later, in 1966, Professor Roger McHugh established the Chair of Anglo-Irish Literature and Drama at UCD, the first such Chair in the field of Irish writing in English to be established nationally or internationally. This public lecture will examine the literary and cultural legacy of MacDonagh’s writings and their impact on the history of Irish writing in Irish and English.
