Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Graduate students in Irish literary criticism present 31 essays from a February 2000 conference in Belfast. They are arranged alphabetically rather then thematically as the conference was structured, so the transition between one and the next can be jarring. The topics include the influence of Robert Frost on Paul Muldoon, reproblematizing the Irish text, and how the Irish national ideal of the Irish National Theatre was abandoned in favor of a corporate trademark in 1902-06. Distributed in the US by ISBS. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
