Product Overview

The first interdisciplinary study of violence and the modern Irish experience, Shadows of the Gunmen contributes to both Irish studies and the broader examination of violence in the modern world. Providing both examples of and an introduction to recent scholarship that addresses the representations of violence, Shadows of the Gunmen probes the connections between political/historical violence and aesthetic representations thereof.

Scholars have long understood the key roles played by violence in the making of modern Ireland. In recent years, studies on violence have become increasingly creative and sophisticated, as scholars have used new analytical lenses to confront the real challenges faced in ?writing violence.? Much of the best work in this new literature examines the complex relationships between violence and its representation. Shadows of the Gunmen provides a coherent introduction to the latest scholarship. With essays from historians, film scholars, literary critics, and philosophers, Shadows of the Gunmen is both relevant to the particular Irish experience and the broader contemporary world. Violence may not speak, but violence is represented and these depictions are continually interrogated and/or contested in public and private arenas across Ireland and abroad. This volume of essays will explore and probe the connection between political/historical violence and aesthetic representations of such violence. The first interdisciplinary study of violence and the modern Irish experience, Shadows of the Gunmen is a major contribution to both Irish studies and the broader examination of violence in the modern world.
