  • Overview

    Irish writers have had a long association with America. Oscar Wilde visited in 1882 where he was well-received by Irish Americans on account of being a son of the patriotic writer Speranza. Douglas Hyde, Ireland’s future president, spent seven months in America raising funds for the Gaelic League. During his four visits to America, W. B. Yeats spent a year of his life in this country. James Joyce never visited America, but his work was the subject of an important legal case in New York which led the way for the publication of Ulysses in America in 1934, 12 years after it first appeared. Ambassador Mulhall will talk about the four writers and their connections with America
