The decade between 1938 and 1948 was a time of immense upheaval across Europe which deeply affected Irish writers and artists. The essays in this collection explore the cultural history of this decade as many travelled the continent in the face of war.
The essay writers include Samuel Beckett, John Betjeman and Evelyn Waugh as well as many others. Their engagements with home and abroad, self and other, complicate established narratives of Irish neutrality and shed light on historical interconnections between Ireland and Europe.
