Synopsis

The Shattered Mirror: Irish Literature and Film, 1990-2005 is a response to changing representations of Irish identity. Interrogating the period of the 'Celtic Tiger' in Ireland, which was accompanied by widespread social change, the book draws on Lacanian psychoanalysis to explore issues such as prosperity, Europeanism, Diaspora, multi-culturalism, decline in religious faith and gender norms. Examining three writers and filmmakers in each section on narrative, drama and film, The Shattered Mirror argues that, in this fifteen years, Irish identity has changed radically.

Dr. Paula Murphy is a lecturer in Mater Dei Institute of Education, Dublin, Ireland. She is the co-editor of New Voices in Irish Literary Criticism: Ireland in Theory (Edwin Mellen Press, 2007). Paula is advisory editor of The Irish Book Review and Kritikos: A Journal of Postmodern Cultural Sound
