Key readings

For the significance of islands in scientific development, see Darwin and Wallace, also Grove and Grant for more recent discussion and commentary. Regarding island literature, the most significant is Defoe’s Robinson Crusoe. For a realistic view of life by an islander, any of the three Great Blasket autobiographies should be consulted, the author’s favourite is that of O’Sullivan. See Loxley for a commentary on island literature. For a range of views on island development, consult Lockhart, Drakakis-Smith and Schembri.
