political and social changes in the last generations of Irish autonomy. It analyzes architectural types and techniques associated with the late Elizabethan colonization of Munster, which may be applicable to early modern Ireland in general.

motherhood as instinctive and natural: as a given. 4 This continuity of meaning is essential to the construction of the mother figure in dramatic and other discourses from the second half of the sixteenth and early seventeenth centuries because it enables her to offer a consistent emotional focus throughout the political, religious and social changes of the period.

required into the extent to which notions of ‘finish’ alter in accordance with political and social change in the latter part of the seventeenth century. Such explorations may tell us more about ideas of completion and finitude in the period directly prior to this; however, it is not on this note that I wish to end this book.

Two late medieval trends, the widespread application of battlements and the growth in number or size of towers
