Description - The Contemporary Irish Novel by Linden Peach
This new study offers innovative critical readings of key contemporary Irish novels, employing a range of historical, psychoanalytic and theoretical approaches. Linden Peach examines texts by established writers, such as William Trevor's Felicia's Journey and John Banville's Birchwood, alongside works by younger writers, including Roddy Doyle, Glenn Patterson and Kathleen Ferguson. Peach addresses the diversity of Irish fiction and the complexity of Northern Ireland and Ireland's history and culture, and considers different modes of writing and themes such as postmodernity, gender, family, fetishism, Catholicism, historical trauma and intercorporeality.
