Back To The Present Forward To The Past from the Author: Patricia A. Lynch. The island of Ireland, north and south, has produced a great diversity of writing in both English and Irish for hundreds of years, often using the memories embodied in its competing views of history as a fruitful source of literary inspiration. Placing Irish literature in an international context, these two volumes explore the connection between Irish history and literature, in particular the Rebellion of 1798, in a more comprehensive, diverse and multi-faceted way than has often been the case in the past. The fifty-three authors bring their national and personal viewpoints as well as their critical judgements to bear on Irish literature in these stimulating articles. The contributions also deal with topics such as Gothic literature, ideology, and identity, as well as gender issues, connections with the other arts, regional Irish literature, in particular that of the city of Limerick, translations, the works of Joyce, and comparisons with the literature of other nations. The contributors are all members of IASIL (International Association for the Study of Irish Literatures). Back to the Present: Forward to the Past. Irish Writing and History since 1798 will be of interest to both literary scholars and professional historians, but also to the general student of Irish writing and Irish culture.

Angela S Ashes E L Inglese D Irlanda Ambiguit Trasparente Di Uno Stile Autenticit Di Una Lingua from the Author: Clara Ferranti. Scrittore statunitense di origine irlandese (1930-2009), insignito del prestigioso premio Pulitzer nel 1997, Frank McCourt innova, nel suo esordio letterario autobiografico Angela’s ashes, uno stile decisamente originale e trasgressivo, sia sul piano linguistico sia nei confronti di ciò che è caratteristicamente intrinseco al genere letterario in cui egli ha convalidato la sua naturale vena di scrittore. Le scelte stilistiche, la struttura narrativa e l’uso della lingua, oscillante tra standard letterario e dialetto, creano l’impressione che il passato di Frank si svolga mentre egli lo racconta: il momento esperienziale si fonde con la reminiscenza e il tempo che li separa viene ad annullarsi. Questo studio offre una dettagliata analisi testuale di Angela’s ashes e, prendendone in esame la tecnica narrativa e l’uso della variazione linguistica, mette in luce alcune peculiarità stilistiche e testuali che rendono l’autobiografia di McCourt unica nel suo genere: l’incontro del ricordo e del vissuto nel “tempo attuativo”, l’incontro dello standard letterario e dell’inglese d’Irlanda nella “lingua di Angela’s ashes”. Clara Ferranti è Ricercatrice di Glottologia e Linguistica presso il Dipartimento di Studi Umanistici dell’Università degli Studi di Macerata, dove insegna Linguistica generale e Fonetica articolatoria in corsi di laurea triennali e magistrali. I suoi interessi scientifici e le sue pubblicazioni riguardano principalmente l’inglese d’Irlanda, la storia del pensiero linguistico, la teoria del linguaggio, la semantica, la sociolinguistica e la fonetica. È direttrice della Collana «Il tempo, la storia e la memoria», è responsabile scientifico e organizzativo del Corso di Storia e didattica della Shoah, organizzato dalla Rete Universitaria per il Giorno della Memoria in vari atenei italiani.

Empire S Wake Postcolonial Irish Writing And The Politics Of Modern Literary Form from the Author: Mark Quigley. Shedding new light on the rich intellectual and political milieux shaping the divergent legacies of Joyce and Yeats, Empire's Wake traces how a distinct postcolonial modernism emerged within Irish literature in the late 1920s to contest and extend key aspects of modernist thought and aesthetic innovation at the very moment that the high modernist literary canon was consolidating its influence and prestige.By framing its explorations of postcolonial narrative form against the backdrop of distinct historical moments from the Irish Free State to the Celtic Tiger era, the book charts the different phases of 20th-century postcoloniality in ways that clarify how the comparatively early emergence of the postcolonial in Ireland illuminates the formal shifts ccompanying the transition from an age of empire to one of globalization.Bringing together new perspectives on Beckett and Joyce with analyses of the critically neglected works of Sean O'Faolain, Frank McCourt, and the Blasket autobiographers, Empire's Wake challenges the notion of a singular "global modernism" and argues for the importance of critically integrating the local and the international dimensions of modernist aesthetics.
