Leaping the boundaries

"Soundings" fashions new languages of solidarity; "Vagant" searches in vain for humanitarian corridors leading to Europe; "Ny Tid" says the essay is a way to political engagement; "Osteuropa" analyses state intervention as practiced in Russia and Hungary; "Merkur" is haunted by selfies picturing the German chancellor; "Index on Censorship" celebrates Shakespearean dissent; and "Letras Libres" traces parallels and disparities between Shakespeare and Cervantes.

Dublin Review of Books
Share |


The Dublin Review of Books is a free online journal of ideas, appearing quarterly. It publishes chiefly review-essays ("long-form" essays, generally from 3,000 to 6,000 words), which in most but not all cases are tied to recently published books, usually but not always in English. Its particular interests and strengths lie chiefly in literature and history, but it also publishes in the fields of politics, economics, sociology, music, visual arts and science. Many, perhaps most, of the review's contributors are university teachers, but it sees itself not so much as an academic review as a bridge between the academy and a wider readership of intelligent citizens. In general, between a third and a half of its content is related to Ireland and Irish questions. Otherwise, the review takes a very strong interest in Europe, its literary and cultural heritage, its turbulent twentieth century history, and the future of its institutions and forms of government.

Enda O'Doherty

People in glass houses

Whatever happened to the lively and apparently healthy democratic process in Central Europe, during the decade after the fall of the Berlin Wall? Answers are more likely to be found in economic circumstances, argues Enda O'Doherty, than supposedly innate tendencies to reaction. [more]

Enda O'Doherty

The romantic Englishman

On the political writings of George Orwell

George Orwell is often credited with elevating political writing to an art. However, argues Enda O'Doherty, it's probably worth separating out the terms "political" and "writing". For while Orwell's writing is undoubtedly of the highest order, the quality of his political judgment remains questionable. [more]

Enda O'Doherty

The last chapter

Go out to your local bookshop, advises Enda O'Doherty, and get in close with those Books You Haven't Read, the Books To Read Next Summer and The Books To Fill Out Those Small Gaps That Are Still There On Your Shelves. Don't come away empty-handed. They may not be there forever. [Ukrainian version added] [more]

Tom Hennigan

The modernist moment

Urban politics in Brazil

Brazil may have been a favourite to win the 2014 FIFA World Cup. But the tournament failed to be the host country's game-changer, writes Tom Hennigan. As triumphs of the tropical modernist movement are swamped by new development, the dismal quality of urban life remains a sore point. [more]

Tim Groenland

Lost in the funhouse

Like Joyce's "Ulysses", Nabokov's "Lolita" was once smuggled through customs in suitcases. Tim Groenland tells the unlikely story of how Nabokov's classic ever came to be published in the first place and then go on to become a commercial success. [Slovenian version added] [more]

Enda O'Doherty

Does European culture exist?

The deep historical roots of European culture may not lie in the geographical and political entity of today's Europe. But it is precisely here that the feeling of belonging inspired by the best that has been thought and said (and sung and painted and danced) needs cultivating, argues Enda O'Doherty. [Spanish version added] [more]

Enda O'Doherty

The beautiful German language

With German-bashing now firmly established as a European "Volkssport", "Dublin Review of Books" editor Enda O'Doherty turns to the semi-barbarous German language; and finds that in the right hands, or expressed through the right vocal cords, German is indeed a very beautiful language. [more]

Enda O'Doherty

Tickled to death

The Leveson Enquiry into the UK hacking scandal is drawing to a close, yet the future of a new press regulatory body remains controversial. Enda O'Doherty asks what the enquiry's findings mean for a definition of journalistic standards and the proper relation between politics and media. [more]

Dan O'Brien

Getting better

Conventional wisdom has it that violence is as prevalent today as it has ever been. Yet a vast body of evidence shows that the chances of an inhabitant of this planet dying violently have never been lower, writes Dan O'Brien, reviewing two new books on the history of violence. [more]

Paul Gillespie

Get smart

Ireland and the euro crisis

Ireland, like other small EU member-states, must be especially smart in responding to the euro crisis, since it does not command the resources that better enable larger states to protect their interests. How coherent has the Irish approach been so far and are the alternatives more convincing? [Hungarian version added] [more]
