In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content:

Acknowledgements There are many people, without whom the writing of this book would not have been possible. I would like to extend my gratitude to those at Trinity College, Dublin, who supported this project: Stanford Kingston and John Scally. I must also graciously acknowledge the support of my colleagues and students at All Hallows College, Dublin City University, particularly Patrick McDevitt, Tom Dalzell, Jim Doyle, Siobhán Larkin, Colm Kilgallon, Jean Berry, and Ronan Tobin, among many others! I would also like to thank Siobhán CahillaneMcGovern of Hibernia College, Dublin. Mostly, I would like to thank those closest to me; Edel, my brother Eric, and particularly my parents for their unconditional love and support. I could not have completed this book without you. I can no other answer make, but thanks and thanks and ever thanks. –—William Shakespeare, THE TWELFTH NIGHT vii ...
