Rhythms of Writing: An Anthropology of Irish Literature
Stockholm University, Faculty of Social Sciences, Department of Social Anthropology.ORCID iD: 0000-0002-8200-7980
2017 (English)Book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

This is the first antrhopological study of writers, writing and conteporary literary culture. Drawing on the flourishing literary scene in Ireland as a basis, Helena Wulff explores the social world of contemporary irish writers, examining fiction, novels, shorts stories as well as journalism. 

The making of a writer's career is built on the "rhythms of writing": long hours of writing in solitude alternate with public events such as book readings and media appearances.
