This second volume spans the middle decades of the 19th century, and the period of terror caused by the Great Famine in Ireland.

Considers the literature of the middle decades of the 19th century in Ireland. Firsthand accounts of the great famine and the enormity of it's impact. This cataclysmic event engendered responses by such writers as John Mitchel.

This volume documents the rise of cultural nationalism, in the work of the contributors to The Nation (Davis, Mangan, Lady Wilde), and the response of Unionist intelligentsia in the Dublin University Magazine. It juxtaposes the authentic Gaelic voice in translation (Ferguson and Walsh) against the haunting intensity of Mangan and the non-conformism of his fellow inauthenticator Father Prout.
