Ireland and Germany

A Study in Literary Relations


Patrick O'Neill

Ireland and Germany is a study in the reciprocal literary relations of Ireland and Germany from the Middle Ages to the present day. After an initial survey of their literary and cultural relations before 1700, the literary impact of each culture upon the other during the eighteenth, nineteenth, and twentieth centuries is separately surveyed and analysed in terms of national image, literary fortune, literary influence, and creative reception. A concluding reference section lists some 600 German translations of nineteenth and twentieth-century Irish writing.
