Description - Writing Ireland's Working Class by Michael Pierse
Exploring writing of working-class Dublin after Sean O'Casey, this book breaks new ground in Irish Studies, unearthing submerged narratives of class in Irish life. Examining how working-class identity is depicted by authors like Brendan Behan and Roddy Doyle, it discusses how this hidden, urban Ireland has appeared in the country's literature.
