Traces the literary influence of three Spanish writers on Kate O’Brien’s work.

"This important study reveals Spain as a significant locus of creative disinhibition and resistance for Kate O’Brien. Her lifelong fascination with Spanish literary culture granted an oblique way of subverting the conservative Catholic social and cultural imperatives of the Irish Free State. Davison convincingly situates O’Brien within a tradition of feminist dissidence, making a vital contribution to ongoing discussions about the significance of gender and sexuality to Irish national identity." —Katherine Mullin, University of Leeds

"This is a book of real importance, providing a fresh and original reading of a central theme within Kate O’Brien’s writings."—Eibhear Walshe, author of Kate O’Brien: A Writing Life
