Remembering Casement in 2016

(p.197) Coda: ‘who is to know the fate of his bones’
The Literary Afterlives of Roger Casement, 1899-2016

Alison Garden


The monograph concludes with a coda exploring the multiple centenary events celebrating Roger Casement’s afterlives that took place in Ireland in 2016, as part of Ireland’s Decade of Commemorations. Rather than offer a conclusion that forecloses our understanding of Casement’s afterlives, this coda gestures towards his continued relevance to cultural memory, cosmopolitan consciousness and the rapidly changing political landscapes of the British and Irish isles. These performances and exhibitions shed fascinating light on the unfinished role that Casement plays within Irish culture and self-fashioning, capturing a range of artistic responses to his afterlives at a key moment in Irish history.
