Matt Skwiat's Paper to Appear in Forthcoming Volume

January 31, 2017

Congratulations to MA student Matt Skwiat, whose work (originally a conference paper) will be featured in Women and the Great Hunger, a collection of essays forthcoming from Cork University Press. Matt's essay re-evaluates the poetry of Jane Elgee (later Jane Wilde, mother of Oscar Wilde), putting her verse into dialogue with the English Romantic poets, and arguing for its influential role in shaping the poetry both of William Butler Yeats and of Oscar Wilde himself.
