The presence of Irish writers is almost invisible in literary studies of London. Irish Writing London redresses the critical deficit. A range of experts on particular Irish writers reflect on the diverse experiences and impact this immigrant group has had on the city. Such sustained attention to a location and concern of Irish writing, long passed over, opens up new terrain to not only reveal but create a history of Irish-London writing.

Alongside discussions of Wilde, Shaw, Joyce and Yeats, the writing of the political nationalist Katharine Tynan and work of Irish-Language writer Conaire is considered. Written by an international array of scholars, these new essays on key figures challenge the deep-seated stereotype of what constitutes the proper domain of Irish writing, producing a study that is both culturally and critically alert and a dynamic contribution to literary criticism of the city.
