Summary "This study pairs selected Irish and British women novelists, relating their voices to the women's movements in their nation. In the first wave, nationalist and militant ideologies competed with the suffrage fight in Ireland. In the second wave, heterosexual romantic relationships come under scrutiny. In the third wave, Irish writers express the frustrations of their cultural identity. "--Provided by publisher
