Modernism, Ireland and the Erotics of Memory by Nicholas Andrew Miller
English | Oct. 7, 2002 | ISBN: 0521815835 | 240 Pages | PDF | 1 MB
Nicholas Miller re-examines memory and its role in modern Irish culture. Asserting that a continuous renegotiation of memory is characteristic of Irish modernist writing, he investigates a series of case-studies in modern Irish historical imagination. He reassesses Ireland's self-construction through external or "foreign" discourses such as the cinema, and proposes new readings of Yeats and Joyce as "counter-memorialists." This original study attracts scholars of Modernism, Irish studies, film and literary theory.
