Abstract

As well as producing a rich body of novels, novellas, short-stories and plays spanning through seventy years of the century of partition, Eugene McCabe charts the broad trajectory of Irish History and Politics from the Elizabethan Conquest and Plantation of Ulster in the 16th and 17th centuries to the recent 'Troubles' which spanned the thirty years between the beginnings of the Civil Right Movement (1968) and the Belfast/Good Friday Agreement (1998). They positively teeth with gruesome assassinations, indiscriminate bombings and deliberate shootings, while resonating with a veritable cacophony of deep-seated ethnic rivalries and genocidal, religious hatreds, which are interlaced with poverty, social depravation and dis-function, migration and emigration
