The Vewe not only clearly articulates the fears surrounding colonial Irish discourse but highlights its similarities to other colonial discourses. It should be viewed as "a highly politicized and agenda driven document" concerned both with problems such as Irish language, fosterage, sexual mores, and customs of dress and with their solutions. The Vewe represents "an opportunity to engage with a text that is both a landmark in English colonial writing and a powerful general introduction to wider imperialist studies."
