dc.description.abstractI would contend that the relevant works of Frank O'Connor, Sean O'Faolain and Liam O'Flaherty represent three points on a spectrum of political relevance, i.e., that as we move from the stories of O'Connor to those of O'Faolain and finally to those of O'Flaherty, the importance of the political content of these stories increases. Any political content in the stories of O'Connor is of secondary significance, serving only to underline and reinforce O'Connor's major theme. In the stories of O'Faolain, as we should see, political content plays a more central role. Finally, in the stories of O'Flaherty, political content is of preeminent importance since these stories are significant primarily as political statements. My purpose here, therefore, is primarily to examine, through a thematic focus, each story of these three groups of stories and secondarily through this thematic analysis to show the increasing importance of political content in these three groups. In the hopes of reclearing more lucid certain nuances present in some of these stories, I have prefaced my examination with the an historical sketch.en_US
