New Publication Examines Author Alice Milligan and the Irish Cultural Revival
Jun 12, 2012
A new book, Alice Milligan and the Irish Cultural Revival is the first study to explore the life and work of author, Alice Milligan (18661953). A prolific writer for over six decades, Milligan published her work in a range of genres, including poetry, short stories, novels, travelogues, biography, plays, journalism, letters, and memoirs.
From 1891 to the 1940s, Milligan founded a series of cultural, feminist, commemorative and political organizations that put the north on the map of the Irish Cultural Revival and provided a new resonance to Irish visual culture. This new book, authored by Cultural Coordinator for Trinity College Dublin and the National Library of Ireland, Catherine Morris, not only reclaims an unjustly forgotten Irish cultural and political activist during this foundational era in modern Ireland, but also provides new ways of interpreting the Irish Cultural Revival itself.
To mark the publication of the book the author Dr Morris was recently invited by President Michael D. Higgins to visit Áras an Uachtaráin.
Catherine Morris holds a degree in literature from the University of Cambridge, a PhD from the University of Aberdeen and has been the recipient of several university fellowship awards. As a writer, editor and curator she has published extensively and taught literature in several universities. In 2010 her National Library of Ireland exhibition about Alice Milligan was opened to acclaim by Fiona Shaw.
