The writer, essayist, biographer, and diplomat Sir Shane Leslie
(1885-1971) is a remarkable, although little known and even less
researched personality of Anglo-Irish culture. Although his many
publications rarely reached a second edition, they are highly
valued as cultural-historical documents. His novel "Doomsland
(1923) has received critical praise as 'a "bildungsroman of
exceptional interest which has been most unfairly neglected.' This
monograph aims to compensate for this unjustified neglect by trying
to rediscover Leslie through his fictional and essayistic work. The
researach for this thesis included a visit to Castle Leslie in
Ireland, Co. Monaghan, explorations of the family archives in
Dublin and Belfast, and, as well as interviews with the writer's
son, Sir John Leslie.
