This chapter takes a look at the nationalist authors who confronted British imperialism by writing fiction that encouraged republican separatism and tried to explain the reason behind the 1881–5 bombing campaign. The first section examines the Fenian movement that engaged in a propaganda war, while the second section studies popular imperial literature. The chapter also discusses the anti-imperial dynamite novel.
