Summary
"Short story writing has flourished in twentieth-century Ireland and Catalonia. The genre has attracted some of the finest writers but in particular women authors. This book considers the disadvantaged position of women in Irish and Catalan society as refracted through the medium of the short story. The writers under discussion include Edna O'Brien, Julia O'Faolain, Eilis Ni Dhuihne, Mary Beckett, Clare Boylan, Mary Dorcey, Angela Bourke, Bourke, Katy Hayes, Anne Devlin, Merce Rodoreda and Caterina Albert." "Women Write Back also explores the subordinate position of Ireland and Catalonia historically in relation to the metropolitan powers of Britain and Spain respectively. The cultural implications of the colonial connection are considered from the viewpoint of women and men."--BOOK JACKET
