The Colonial Conan Doyle: British Imperialism, Irish Nationalism, and the Gothic

By Catherine Wynne | Go to book overview

Acknowledgments

I am very grateful for the assistance and cooperation of many people who have supported my work on Arthur Conan Doyle from its inception. In particular, I would like to thank Bernard O'Donoghue who encouraged me to pursue this study, and Declan Kiberd, whose excellent work has influenced my thinking.

I especially thank my family, particularly my parents, Patrick and Rose Wynne, and my brother, David who have always supported my research.

Keith Spence read the entire manuscript and helped me in every possible way during the completion of this project—thank you for everything.

I am indebted to Deirdre Flood, Heather Hamill, Michael Leddy, and Edel McGloin. I would also like to thank my colleagues Martin Arnold, David Crouch, Ann Kaegi, Charles Mundye, and James Booth. I am particularly grateful to Thomas Mulvihill and Patrick O'Sulllivan for their invaluable enthusiasm and assistance in the incipient stages of this work. I would also like to acknowledge the support of Jane Hawkes, Richard Gray and Angela Matthews.

I would like to thank the Council of Trustees of the National Library of Ireland for permission to quote from the Papers of Roger Casement; the Punch Cartoon Library and Archive for permission to reproduce Punch illustrations. Part of Chapter 1 appears in a different form in Jouvert: A Journal of Postcolonial Studies (Fall 1999), and I am grateful to Jouvert for its cooperation. Part of Chapter 3 appears in a different form in Stacy Gillis and Philippa Gates (eds.), The Devil Himself: Villainy in Detective Fiction and Film (Greenwood Press, 2002). I would like to thank the publisher for its cooperation.

I would also like to extend my gratitude to the following for their assistance: Noel Kissane, National Library of Ireland; Brigitte Istim, Punch Cartoon Library and Archive; and Gordon Smith, J.B. Morrell Library, University of York.

The following libraries have been invaluable: Bodleian Library; British Library; National Library of Ireland; University of Hull Libraries; J.B. Morrell Library, University of York; Brotherton Library, University of Leeds.

Finally, I would like to thank George Butler, Nina Duprey, and Greenwood Press.
