Summary Book Review Irish Modernisms by Paul Fagan:
Download or read book Irish Modernisms written by Paul Fagan and published by Bloomsbury Publishing. This book was released on 2021-09-23 with total page 280 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This book focuses on previously unexplored gaps, limitations and avenues of inquiry within the canon and scholarship of Irish modernism to develop a more attentive and fluid theoretical account of this conceptual field. Foregrounding interfaces between literary, visual, musical, dramatic, cinematic, epistolary and journalistic media, these essays introduce previously peripheral writers, artists and cultural figures to debates about Irish modernism: Hannah Berman, Ethel Colburn Mayne, Mary Devenport O'Neill, Sheila Wingfield, Freda Laughton, Rhoda Coghill, Elizabeth Bowen, Máirtín Ó Cadhain, Joseph Plunkett, Liam O'Flaherty, Edward Martyn, Jane Barlow, Seosamh Ó Torna, Jack B. Yeats and Brian O'Nolan all feature here to interrogate the term's implications. Probing Irish modernism's responsiveness to contemporary theory beyond postcolonial and Irish studies, Irish Modernisms: Gaps, Conjectures, Possibilities uses diverse paradigms, including weak theory, biopolitics, posthumanism and the nonhuman turn, to rethink Irish modernism's organising themes: the material body, language, mediality, canonicity, war, state violence, prostitution, temporality, death, mourning. Across the volume, cutting-edge work from queer theory and gender studies draws urgent attention to the too-often marginalized importance of women's writing and queer expression to the Irish avant-garde, while critical reappraisals of the coordinates of race and national history compel us to ask not only where and when Irish modernism occurred, but also whose modernism it was?
Summary Book Review The Distance of Irish Modernism by John Greaney:
Download or read book The Distance of Irish Modernism written by John Greaney and published by Bloomsbury Publishing. This book was released on 2022-06-16 with total page 248 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The Distance of Irish Modernism interrogates the paradox through which Irish modernist fictions have become containers for national and transnational histories while such texts are often oblique and perverse in terms of their times and geographies. John Greaney explores this paradox to launch a metacritical study of the modes of inquiry used to define Irish modernism in the 21st century. Focused on works by Samuel Beckett, Elizabeth Bowen, John McGahern, Flann O'Brien and Kate O'Brien, this book analyses how and if the complex representational strategies of modernist fictions provide a window on historical events and realities. Greaney deploys close reading, formal analysis, narratology and philosophical accounts of literature alongside historicist and materialist approaches, as well as postcolonial and world literature paradigms, to examine how modernist texts engage the cultural memories they supposedly transmit. Emphasizing the proximities and the distances between modernist aesthetic practice and the history of modernity in Ireland and beyond, this book enables a new model for narrating Irish modernism.

Download or read book The Distance of Irish Modernism written by John Greaney and published by Bloomsbury Publishing. This book was released on 2022-07-14 with total page 243 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: "Rethinking the relationship between form and history in Irish modernist writing and its aftermath, this book examines how critics have previously categorized the Irish modernist novel, as an evidentiary form of cultural memory. John Greaney exposes the problems with such a stance, exploring this paradox by analysing novels by Elizabeth Bowen, Kate O'Brien, Samuel Beckett, Flann O'Brien and John McGahern through new critical paradigms in modernist studies. This approach contrasts the untranslatable gap between modernist literature and national history (world literature, translation studies) with materialist approaches to modernism (affect theory, new materialism), and in so doing delineates how Irish modernism becomes both a world problematic as well as a container for national history. As such, The Distance of Irish Modernism demonstrates that modernist fictions, and fictions influenced by the legacies of modernism, are engaged with but different to the cultural memories they supposedly transmit. Constituting new methodologies for understanding how stories are told and memories are formulated in and after Irish modernist writing, this book re-conceptualizes the parameters of Irish modernism"--

Summary Book Review The Critical Pragmatism of Alain Locke by Leonard Harris:
Download or read book The Critical Pragmatism of Alain Locke written by Leonard Harris and published by Rowman & Littlefield Pub Incorporated. This book was released on 1999 with total page 394 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This book provides a comprehensive overview of Alain Locke's pragmatist philosophy. It aims to capture the radical implications of Locke's approach within pragmatism, the critical temper embedded in Locke's works, the central role of power and empowerment of the oppressed, and the concept of broad democracy Locke employed. Arguing that the school of thought Locke initiated is best described as critical pragmatism, the well-known philosopher and Locke scholar, Leonard Harris, provides a clear and thorough introduction to Locke's thought that will be useful to students and scholars alike. At a time when critical theory in all forms_post-Marxist, legal, race, and gender theory_is undergoing a major reassessment, this volume is especially timely. Locke's critical pragmatism arguably avoids the pitfalls of critical theory, anticipates its tremendous contribution to human liberation, and offers an alternative to the limitations of classical pragmatism. This volume introduces unique individual interpretations of Locke and critical reflections on his philosophy. Each author, in the spirit of Locke's critical temper, offers their own contribution to extremely difficult issues.
