Summary
"This book uncovers George Russell as active agent in a nation, and then a state, where anarchism, co-operation, labour and capital fought for popular recognition through pamphlets, periodicals, newssheets and weeklies. These fugitive forms are integrated here in one major narrative, giving the reader a new sense of Irish literature as ephemera, experiment, authority and dissent. The period's great controversies - the 1913 Lock-Out, the First World War, the Easter Rising, the Anglo-Irish and Civil Wars, the Russian Revolution, the founding of the Irish state - are recast in contexts - of dada, futurism, fascism, socialism, evolution and science - that restore Russell as a driving force in the island's intellectual development. This is a study of George Russell, writer, editor and thinker, in a new Ireland of radical action and revolutionary change."--BOOK JACKET
