Ascendancy and Tradition in Anglo-Irish Literary History from 1789 To 1939

W. J. McCormack

Abstract

The period between Burke's last years and the generation of Yeats and Joyce was a critical force in the development of modernist literature in the origins of Protestant Ascendancy ideology. This study uncovers the origins of Ascendancy and traces its cultural significance by means of a series of detailed critiques of central texts and concepts.

Keywords: Burke, Yeats, Joyce, modernist literature, Protestant Ascendancy
