In this chapter, several critical literatures, writings, and essays to the Protestant Ascendancy, system of land tenure, the Emancipation Period, and the Irish Church are discussed. Among the literary products discussed here are the works of Tresham Dames Gregg, Sir William Scott, and Le Fanu. In addition, several critical essays and novels are mentioned.
