Since the 1980s, there has been an unprecedented emergence of women writers in Ireland and Galicia. From very diverse aesthetic and ideological positions, they have radically transformed their respective literary fields by modifying national imaginaries and proposing new conceptions of writing and identity. Three identitary spaces — nature, language and myth— structure the first part of the book, while a second section provides the writers with a platform from which they present the literary and social cornerstones of this recent cultural phenomenon.
