LIT 105 - (LT) Irish Literature in Translation

Semester Hours: 3
Periodically
Ireland has the oldest vernacular literature in the world. This course will examine that literature in translation: its unique genres (the aisling, the caoine), the relationship between oral and written literature in the Irish language, and tradition and innovation in Irish language literature. It will consider the Irish language as a case study in language and colonialism: the prohibition of Irish by the English government after the fall of the Gaelic order in the 17th century, the survival of the language despite the Great Irish Famine and high emigration from Irish-speaking areas, the place of Irish language and literature in the nationalist movement at the end of the nineteenth century, and its current status in a globalized world as a working language of the European Union.
