Quick Overview

Cultural Memories of the Great Famine in Irish and British Fiction.
Recollecting Hunger brings together selections from Irish Famine novels and stories from the Famine until Independence. This anthology contains not only well-known material by authors such as Anthony Trollope, William Carleton, and Canon Patrick Sheehan, but also obscure texts by writers such as Margaret Percival, Susanna Meredith, Canon William Francis Barry and Louis J. Walsh. Fully annotated and placed in their historical context, these texts make visible the ways in which literary texts remember the Famine. Many of these texts - some known, more unknown - are not only interesting from a scholarly point of view, but are in fact engrossing and well written, and will therefore also appeal to general readers with an interest in the hidden treasures of Irish literary history.
