Irish Writing in English since the sixteenth century has involved a remarkable flowering of creativity in a wide variety of genres. Trinity College has often been to the fore in this regard and numbers such major figures as Jonathan Swift and Samuel Beckett among its graduates. The well-known contemporary writers William Trevor, Derek Mahon, Michael Longley, Eavan Boland, Sebastian Barry and Anne Enright continue a tradition that has seen many of the college's graduates contribute to Ireland's reputation as a country in which excellent writing is produced and celebrated.
The course is designed to be complete in itself, but can also serve as preparation for those who wish to proceed to further research in the field.
