Following the acclaimed volume Ireland in the Renaissance, c.1540-1660 (2007) by the same editors, this multi-disciplinary collection in history, art history, literature, and archaeology takes a wide look at the region of the English Pale in Ireland - and the concept of the Pale itself - during the early modern period. The subjects covered include: the archaeological traces of Pale fortifications * hidden houses at Athy, Co. Kildare, and Carstown, Co. Louth * the Gaelic Irish of east Leinster and their countrymen at the London court * gardens * music * powerful Geraldine women * the classical and political pretentions of the 'Old English' literary community * church settlement * a new interpretation of the Earl of Strafford's daunting pile at Jigginstown near Naas, Co. Kildare * and more.
