(p.191) Comment B: An Irish Perspective
The Promotion of Knowledge

G. Ó Háinle Cathal

British Academy

This chapter comments on Keith Robbins' lecture on the history of Ireland, Scotland and Wales. It criticizes Robbins' failure to include a discussion on the Irish, Scottish Gaelic and Welsh language and literature. It argues that well before the economic and political Europeanisation of Ireland took place, writers in Irish had sought and succeeded in Europeanising literature in Irish. It also contends that throughout the twentieth century Ireland has not seen itself as a country suffering the deprivation of being ‘not England’.

Keywords:   history, Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Keith Robbins, Irish literature, Europeanisation
