Lecture on Sebastian Barry, "The Secret Scripture"

  • literaturhaus.dortmund

Veranstaltung im Rahmen von LiteraturAufRuhr

Sebastian Barry's The Secret Scripture showcases the experiential dimension of twentieth-century Irish history in exemplary fashion. In setting the secret private ruminations of its female heroine against the attempts of her psychiatrist to piece together her life and her personality from the official record, the novel asks uncomfortable questions about power, gender, reliability and truth. In "The Secret Scripture", the reflexivity of historiographic metafiction joins forces with the power of Irish storytelling traditions.

In cooperation with EFACIS (European Federation of Associations and Centres of Irish Studies) and the Government of Ireland, the Institut für Sprache, Literatur und Kultur (ISLK) at TU Dortmund University and the literaturhaus.dortmund proudly present three lectures as part of the project "German Irish Studies Itinerary" (GISI).
