about

Strangers to that Land is a critical anthology of English, Scottish and Welsh colonists' and travelers' accounts of Ireland and the Irish from the sixteenth to the nineteenth centuries, from the Reformation to the Famine. The anthology consists exclusively of eyewitness descriptions of Ireland given by writers using English who had never been to Ireland before and were seeing the country for the first time. Each extract, where necessary, is set in context and briefly explained. The result is a vivid, continuous record of Ireland as defined and judged by the British over a period of four centuries.
Andrew Hadfield is a lecturer in Medieval and Renaissance English Literature at the University of Wales. John McVeagh is Senior Lecturer in English at the University of Ulster at Coleraine, Ireland.
