This collection on Irish folklore and storytelling is a timely treasury for those interested in Irish writing, identity, life and ideas.

Hardback edition

Exploring the fascination of Irish folklore and storytelling for collectors, scholars, writers and readers, Folklore and Modern Irish Writing offers a comprehensive overview of the complex relationship between oral traditions and literary practices in Ireland.

The rich contributions by leading Irish literary academics develop existing studies and further our understanding of the nature and importance of Irish folklore, acknowledging the symbiotic relationship that exists between storytellers of oral narrative, on the one hand, and literary storytellers on the other.

Fresh perspectives are offered on the continuing evolution of folklore collection and scholarship in Ireland, while new contexts are provided for evaluating the diverse ways in which Irish writers have drawn on traditional narratives, beliefs and practices, exemplified by the blending of folklore and individual creativity.
