Pagan beliefs were assimilated into Christianity, but not entirely so: a theme which is dealt with in the essay on writing in early Ireland. The relationship between the various Irish Churches and writers in the 18th and 19th centuries is examined as is the influence of folk religion in modern Irish literature. There follow essays on: ghosts, Yeats, Synge, Joyce and Beckett- and on the poets Macneice, Kavanagh and Desmond Egan. Contributors: Lance St. John Butler- Peter Denman- Desmond Egan- Ruth Fleischmann- A. M. Gibbs- Barbara Hayley- Eamonn Hughes- Anne McCartney- Seamus MacMathuna- Joseph McMinn- Nuala ni Dhomhnaill- Mitsuko Ohno- Daithi O Hogain- Alan Peacock- Patricia Rafroidi and Robert Welch.
