In About O'Casey Dr Victoria Stewart explores the life and work of Sean O'Casey, whose writing career spanned some of the most tumultuous times in Ireland's history, tracing the path which led him to an association with Dublin's Abbey Theatre in the early 1920s, and the turns his career took after he made the decision to leave Ireland for good. The book includes interviews with O'Casey, and the theatre practitioners who have put his work on stage, including Paul Kerryson, John Crowley, Dearbhla Molloy, Andy Arnold and Shivaun O'Casey. A clear and stimulating collection of material on one of Ireland's major writers.

About the Author:

Victoria Stewart studied English and Theatre Studies at the Universities of Sheffield and Leeds, and received her PhD from Leeds in 1997. Her teaching interests lie in the areas of twentieth-century literature and theatre. She has published articles on various aspects of twentieth-century writing. Her research interests include trauma theory and autobiography and she has recently completed a study of representations of war in twentieth-century women's autobiographical writing. She is currently working on a study of memory in 1940s writing.

Review:

"'The strong point of the books in this series is the distinctive voices of the writers, their attitudes and how these are reflected in their plays. Smart chronologies and brief annotated bibliographies give the books a student - friendly feel and all are readable and jargon - free.' Aleks Sierz"
