After Yeats and Joyce : Reading Modern Irish Literature (Opus)

by Neil Corcoran
Our Price: $14.95

From the 1920s onwards, Irish literature has been the subject of much contention. It is a period in which ideas of Ireland--people, community, and nation--and a distinct Irish identity have been challenged. Focusing after the works of Yeats and Joyce, the author explores the exact definition of Irish literature and offers a far-reaching introduction to modern Irish writing .

A Short History of Irish Literature
by Seamus Deane

Our Price: $17.50

Seamus Deane, one of Ireland's most important critics, assesses here the place of literature in "a colonial or neo-colonial culture like ours, where the naming of the territory has always been ... a politically charged act." The force of Deane's A Short History of Irish Literature derives precisely from his naming of the territory. With insight, erudition, and a razor-keen style, he locates Irish writers within the island's traumatic history. His aim is to show how literature has been inescapably allied with historical interpretation and with political allegiance.
