Description

Seminar paper from the year 2009 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 2,0, University of Dusseldorf "Heinrich Heine" (Philosophische Fakultät), course: Social Conditions in Ireland as Portrayed in Post-Colonial Literature, language: English, abstract: "The English did many terrible things to the Irish but one of the great things they did was give us this wonderful language.

It will be my task to take a closer look at common topics in Irish books and if some aspects of Irish literature occur more often in their books as it actually seems. Furthermore I will figure out how many new words the Irish created over the decent years and why an English person won't understand these words without looking them up in a hiberno dictionary. Finding the answer to some common questions about Irish behavior and habits will be another task I have to deal with. To sum up, you could say that my paper will be about a lot of Irish o
