Is literature always political? Does the writer have more political responsibility than other citizens, or less? What was the role of Irish literature in creating a national identity, and what is it now, in the age of Brexit? Here two of Ireland’s finest writers, the novelist John Banville and the journalist and critic Fintan O’Toole, will tussle their way across these questions.
