This doctoral dissertation has as its aim to analyse in three Irish novels (The Gathering, by Anne Enright, The Blackwater Lightship, by Colm Tóibín, and The Light of Evening, by Edna O‟Brien), how the female main protagonists of the novels perceive or understand their families, from the point of view through which their stories are narrated, as well as through the way they understand their own generation and those of their mothers and grandmothers. Through these perceptions the dissertation also tried to analyse the political and cultural transformation Ireland went through in the Twentieth Century. This period witnessed two great historical events for the country: its Independence in 1922, and its glorious years of economic development, which began around 1990, with the so called Celtic Tiger Years, and lasted until 2008. The analysis of the selected novels as the corpus of this dissertation according to their narrative points of view and the historical, political and cultural contexts in which they are set is also a way of analysing the contribution their authors gave to our own understanding of Ireland as a nation.
