Victor Merriman's work on Irish theatre is in the vanguard
of a whole new paradigm in Irish theatre scholarship, one that is not content to
contemplate monuments of past or present achievement, but for which the theatre
is a lens that makes visible the hidden malaises in Irish society.
That he has been able to do so by focusing on a period when so much else
in Irish culture conspired to hide those problems is only testimony to the
considerable power of his critical scrutiny. Chris Morash, NUI Maynooth.
