Special Offer on Irish Cosmopolitanism: Location and Dislocation in Joyce, Bowen and Beckett
Nels Pearson’s book Irish Cosmopolitanism: Location and Dislocation in James Joyce, Elizabeth Bowen and Samuel Beckett is now available from University Press of Florida in a very affordable paperback edition ($15 using code MDG17 at checkout).
Winner of the 2015 Donald Murphy Prize (ACIS) and favorably reviewed in Modern Fiction Studies, Twentieth Century Literature, Breac, The James Joyce Broadsheet and other venues, the book challenges critical trends that view their work as either affirming Irish anti-colonial sentiment or embracing international identity. In reality, it argues, these writers constantly work back and forth between a sense of national belonging that remains incomplete and ideas of human universality tied to their new global environments. For these and many other Irish writers, national and international concerns do not conflict, but overlap–and the interplay between them motivates Irish modernism.
