• Out of History

Out of History is the first book to appear on the work of multiple award-winning Irish author, Sebastian Barry. Barry is recognized as one of Ireland's greatest living writers, publishing plays, novels, short stories and poetry. He has been short-listed for the Man Booker prize twice and his play The Stewart of Christendom became canonical in Ireland on its first appearance in 1995 and was absorbed in to the contemporary repertoire abroad.

This book presents twelve essays that trace the development of the writer's career and the individual achievement of his works, concentrating largely, but not exclusively, on the plays. The essays in this volume include contributions from the most prominent of Irish Studies critics from Ireland, Britain, and the United States. The range and selection of contributors has ensured a high level of critical expression and an insightful assessment of Barry and his works.

Contributors: Peter Denman, Éilis Ní Duibhne, Bruce Stewart, David Cregan, Christina Hunt Mahony, Anthony Roche, John Wilson Foster, Elizabeth Butler Cullingford, Nicholas Grene, Roy Foster, Colm Tóibín, Claire Gleitman and Fintan Walsh
