In the first half of the 20th century, Irish character and identity became fully separate from their English-influenced past. This episode investigates how Ireland's turbulent early 20th century history spawned a literary revival by highlighting the works of George Bernard Shaw, William Butler Yeats, James Joyce, and Sean O'Casey. Part of the "Great Irish Authors" series. Please note this title contains mature themes and nudity in artwork.
