‘THE BALM OF LAUGHTER’: CARTOONS AND THE IRISH

with Felix Larkin

Central Library

09/10/2019 at 1:10pm

Cartoons fit comfortably into what Vivian Mercier called the “Irish comic tradition”, arguably the central tradition of Irish and Anglo-Irish literature. Felix will give an overview of the history of Irish cartoons (from Mathew Carey’s Volunteers’ Journal to Martyn Turner) and of cartoons about the Irish (from Daniel O’Connell to Brexit).
