Congratulations to Dr Tina Morin of the University of Limerick on her recently-announced Irish Research Council award.

Dr Morin will work with us to discover what the Irish novelist Charles Robert Maturin read in Marsh’s Library when he was researching his great novel Melmoth the Wanderer (1820).

Little known today, the novel was a great favourite with Oscar Wilde, who took the name ‘Sebastian Melmoth’ when in exile in France.
