Latest Publications

"Silence in Modern Irish Literature" Edited by Michael McAteer, Pázmány Péter Catholic University, Budapest. 

Silence in Modern Irish Literature is the first book to focus exclusively on the treatment of silence in modern Irish literature. It reveals the wide spectrum of meanings that silence carries in modern Irish literature: a mark of historical loss, a form of resistance to authority, a force of social oppression, a testimony to the unspeakable, an expression of desire, a style of contemplation.
