Abstrakt EN: This chapter argues that we can no longer understand Irish poetry during the Victorian age through a nationalist approach. By removing that, other important oeuvres come to the fore - e.g., Oscar Wilde, J. M. Synge and James Henry - that were previously overlooked. It emphasizes the importance of the Irish language in anglophone poetry of the time - both the poets' ignorance and knowledge of it over their careers - and the way such material was absorbed into the English canon.
