Because We Are Poor


    Victor Merriman's work on Irish theatre is in the vanguard

    of a whole new paradigm in Irish theatre scholarship, one that is not content to

    contemplate monuments of past or present achievement, but for which the theatre

    is a lens that makes visible the hidden malaises in Irish society.

    That he has been able to do so by focusing on a period when so much else

    in Irish culture conspired to hide those problems is only testimony to the

    considerable power of his critical scrutiny. Chris Morash, NUI Maynooth.
