Novels of the Easter Rising: an annotated bibliography


The story of Easter Week will "not go away, only sink deeper into the unconscious, personal and collective, and with its inherent energy act as magnet to all kinds of numinous forces" (32)

Bolger, Dermot. Ed. 16 on 16: Irish Writers on the Easter Rising. Dublin: Raven Arts P, 1988. Print.


This bibliography is a work in progress and the site will be updated as new information becomes available.

The novels are organized with two lists: the "Complete Bibliography" is MLA formatted with full bibliographic information and links to each novel's annotation; the "List by Title" is an abbreviated version, alphabetized by title, but including links to annotations. 

The annotations themselves provide three types of information about the novels: a plot summary, a list of key characters, and a publication history.

Please feel free to contact Danine Farquharson with any suggestions, corrections, or comments.
