Literature in a Divided Community.
Taylor, Anne
For many years, Northern Ireland has been living under the shadow of civil strife. These years have produced relatively little literature, either adult or juvenile, which deals directly with the so-called "troubles." Literature can play an important role guiding against prejudicial attitudes and in educating individuals about society as a whole. This paper discusses novels for adults and adolescents that deal with the IRA (Irish Republican Army), antagonism between Protestant and Catholic communities, and other related political and social problems. Two writers are featured as having captured the essence of life in Northern Ireland, John Lingard and Martin Waddell (who also uses the name Catherine Sefton). A bibliography of their works is included. (AEF)
