    Scholarcast 39: Giving 'A Tongue to the Sea Cliffs': The Landless Inheritance of W.B. Yeats and Eavan Boland

    Irish literature has often been shaped by its relation to the national through land and the consciousness of land.  New perspectives provided by Atlantic studies, however, now allow for new narratives unrelated to land to be put into conversation with older narratives. This lecture examines work by two twentieth-century poets, one early and one late, that offer insight on this.

    Scholarcast 33: Archipelagic Cartographies: Brenda Chamberlain's 'Western Isle'

    Scholarcast 33: Archipelagic Cartographies: Brenda Chamberlain's 'Western Isle'

    This lecture is an exploration of the archipelagic island imagination of artist, poet and writer Brenda Chamberlain (1912–71) under the rubric of literary cartography. Part of a wider study of the literary text's 'mapmindedness' – the ways in which imaginative writing accomplishes specifically cartographic 'work' – the paper examines Chamberlain's emotional geographies of the Irish Sea, focusing on her fabling autobiographical account of her residence on Bardsey Island (Ynys Enlli), off the Llyn Peninsula, north Wales: Tide-race (1962).
