Writing Modern Ireland

Thomas Dillon Redshaw

Liverpool University Press

This essay traces the history of the revival of the Cuala Press between 1969 and 1989, focusing on the press's continuing work in craft publishing, disseminating the work of Irish writers, often in service of marketing Ireland and in the face of financial difficulties. It considers the role of Liam Miller in the Cuala Press revival, especially in the publication of the press's first titles. It shows how the Cuala Press, often working in the Arts and Crafts tradition of the earlier incarnations of the Cuala and Dun Emer presses, broadened its scope to include scholarly works on W. B. Yeats and works drawn from Yeats's papers, new works celebrating Anglo-Ireland, as well as new Irish writing including Thomas Kinsella's Notes from the Land of the Dead (1972), John Montague's A Fair House: Versions of Irish Poetry (1973) and Louis MacNeice's song cycle The Revenant (1975). The essay highlights the Cuala Press's continued, if modified, role in Irish literature.
