Barry McCrea's New Book - Languages of the Night

Author: Mary Jo Young

 Languages of the Night: Minor Languages and the Literary Imagination in Twentieth-Century Ireland and Europe (Yale University Press, 2015), explores how the decline of rural languages and dialects in twentieth-century Europe shaped ideas about language and literature and exerted a powerful influence on literary modernism. 

It is a superb study that brings Irish language literature to the heart of debates on comparative literary modernism. Congratulations Barry!
