HC Professor to Lecture on Irish Women Writers and Practice of Prayer

Rehm Library

College of the Holy Cross
Worcester, MA 01610

Paige Reynolds, professor of English at the College of the Holy Cross, will give a lecture titled "'the strong critical view': Catholic Practice, Modern Fiction, and the Irish Woman Writer." Reynolds will focus on the fiction of 20th-century Irish Catholic writers Kate O’Brien and Mary Lavin and will examine how these Irish women writers represent the practice of prayer. According to Reynolds, their work undermines the long-standing claim that literary modernism was categorically hostile toward or indifferent to religion.

This lecture is part of the initiative Catholics & Cultures and is one of the Deitchman Family Lectures on Religion and Modernity.
