|Abstract:||<p>This thesis offers a basic, critical introduction to the work of the contemporary Irish writer, James Plunkett. As there is virtually no criticism of the writer, the work itself is examined in some depth. Strumpet City and Farewell Companions are discussed as novels which can be read in sequence, thus providing a unique view of Irish life between 1907 and 1947, and as individual works which stand on their own merit. Plunkett's growth as a writer is observed through his Collected Short Stories. The Gems She Wore: A Book of Irish Places is used as background material. In conclusion, a basic philosophy of brotherhood is seen as the uniting theme of all Plunkett's work.</p>|
