The previous chapters have argued for the significance of Bhabha’s ideas about what happens when the previously silenced or marginalized emerge from the margins for contemporary Irish fiction. Particularly relevant to the work by women writers, which is the subject of this chapter, is Bhabha’s thesis that previously marginalized voices, emerging from and in turn determining the spatio-cultural shift in a nation’s ideas of itself, confront and contradict the dominant discourses that have been directly or indirectly responsible for their silence and marginalization.
