The Oxford Handbook Of Modern Irish Poetry

by Fran Brearton, release date 2012, The Oxford Handbook Of Modern Irish Poetry Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Oxford Handbook Of Modern Irish Poetry books, Describes the latest thinking on modern Irish poetry, beginning with a consideration of W. B. Yeats's early work and the legacy of the nineteenth century. The broadly chronological areas that follow, covering the period from the 1910s through to the twenty-first century, allow scope for coverage of key poetic voices in Ireland in their historical and political context. From the experimentalism of Samuel Beckett, Thomas MacGreevy, and others of the modernist generation, to the refashioning of Yeats's Ireland on the part of poets such as Louis MacNeice, Patrick Kavanagh, and Austin Clarke mid-century, through to the controversially titled post-1969 'Northern Renaissance' of poetry, the book provides extensive coverage of the key movements of the modern period. It covers the work of, among others, Paul Durcan, Thomas Kinsella, Brendan Kennelly, Seamus Heaney, Paul Muldoon, Michael Longley, Medbh McGuckian, and Ciaran Carson. The thematic sections interspersed throughout-- chapters on women's poetry, religion, translation, painting, music, stylistics-- allow for comparative studies of poets north and south across the century. Central to the guiding spirit of this project is the book's analysis of poetic forms as well as the generic diversity of poetry in Ireland, its various manipulations, reinventions, and sometimes repudiations of traditional forms. It also looks at the work of a 'new' generation of poets from Ireland, concentrating on work published in the last two decade.

Download The Oxford Handbook Of Modern Irish Poetry books, Forty chapters, written by leading scholars across the world, describe the latest thinking on modern Irish poetry. The Handbook begins with a consideration of Yeats's early work, and the legacy of the 19th century. The broadly chronological areas which follow, covering the period from the 1910s through to the 21st century, allow scope for coverage of key poetic voices in Ireland in their historical and political context.

The Handbook covers the work of, among others, Paul Durcan, Thomas Kinsella, Brendan Kennelly, Seamus Heaney, Paul Muldoon, Michael Longley, Medbh McGuckian, and Ciaran Carson. The thematic sections interspersed throughout - chapters on women's poetry, religion, translation, painting, music, stylistics - allow for comparative studies of poets north and south across the century. Central to the guiding spirit of this project is the Handbook's consideration of poetic forms, and a number of essays explore the generic diversity of poetry in Ireland, its various manipulations, reinventions and sometimes repudiations of traditional forms. The last essays in the book examine the work of a 'new' generation of poets from Ireland, concentrating on work published in the last two decades by Justin Quinn, Leontia Flynn, Sinead Morrissey, David Wheatley, Vona Groarke, and others.

The Oxford Handbook Of Modern Irish Theatre

by Nicholas Grene, release date 2016-07-28, The Oxford Handbook Of Modern Irish Theatre Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Oxford Handbook Of Modern Irish Theatre books, The Oxford Handbook of Modern Irish Theatre provides the single most comprehensive survey of the field to be found in a single volume. Drawing on more than forty contributors from around the world, the book addresses a full range of topics relating to modern Irish theatre from the late nineteenth-century theatre to the most recent works of postdramatic devised theatre. Ireland has long had an importance in the world of theatre out of all proportion to the size of the country, and has been home to four Nobel Laureates (Yeats, Shaw, and Beckett; Seamus Heaney, while primarily a poet, also wrote for the stage). This collection begins with the influence of melodrama, looks at arguably the first modern Irish playwright, Oscar Wilde, before moving into a series of considerations of the Abbey Theatre, and Irish modernism. Arranged chronologically, it explores areas such as women in theatre, Irish-language theatre, and alternative theatres, before reaching the major writers of more recent Irish theatre, including Brian Friel and Tom Murphy, and their successors. There are also individual chapters focusing on Beckett and Shaw, as well as a series of chapters looking at design, acting and theatre architecture. The book concludes with an extended survey of the critical literature on the field. In each chapter, the author does not simply rehearse accepted wisdom; all of the authors push the boundaries of their respective fields, so that each chapter is a significant contribution to scholarship in its own right.

The Oxford Handbook Of Contemporary British And Irish Poetry

by Oxford handbooks online, release date 2013, The Oxford Handbook Of Contemporary British And Irish Poetry Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Oxford Handbook Of Contemporary British And Irish Poetry books, This book offers thirty-eight chapters of ground breaking research that form a collaborative guide to the many groupings and movements, the locations and styles, as well as concerns (aesthetic, political, cultural and ethical) that have helped shape contemporary poetry in Britain and Ireland. The book's introduction offers an anthropological participant-observer approach to its variously conflicted subjects, while exploring the limits and openness of the contemporary as a shifting and never wholly knowable category. The five ensuing sections explore: a history of the period's poetic movements; its engagement with form, technique, and the other arts; its association with particular locations and places; its connection with, and difference from, poetry in other parts of the world; and its circling around such ethical issues as whether poetry can perform actions in the world, can atone, redress, or repair, and how its significance is inseparable from acts of evaluation in both poets and readers.

The Oxford Handbook Of Percy Bysshe Shelley

by Madeleine Callaghan, release date 2012-12-27, The Oxford Handbook Of Percy Bysshe Shelley Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Oxford Handbook Of Percy Bysshe Shelley books, The Oxford Handbook of Percy Bysshe Shelley takes stock of current developments in the study of a major Romantic poet and prose-writer, and seeks to advance Shelley studies in new directions. It consists of forty-two chapters written by an international cast of established and emerging scholar-critics. This Handbook is divided into five thematic sections: Biography and Relationships; Prose; Poetry; Cultures, Traditions, Influences; and Afterlives. The first section reappraises Shelley's life and relationships, including those with his publishers through whom he sought to reach an audience for the 'Ashes and sparks' of his thought, and with women, creative collaborators as well as muse-figures. The second section gives his under-investigated prose works detailed attention, bringing multiple perspectives to bear on his conceptual positions, and demonstrating the range of his achievement in prose works from novels to political and poetic treatises. The third section explores Shelley's creativity and gift as a poet, emphasizing his capacity to excel in many different poetic genres. The fourth section looks at Shelley's response to past and present literary cultures, both English and international, and at his immersion in science, music, theatre, the visual arts, and travel. The fifth section concludes the volume by analysing Shelley's literary and cultural afterlife, from his influence on Victorians and Moderns, to his status as the exemplary poet for Deconstruction. Packed with stimulating insights and readings, The Oxford Handbook of Percy Bysshe Shelley brings out the relevance to Shelley's own work of his dictum that 'All high poetry is infinite' .

Though the book is not structured to feature chapters on authors thought to be canonical, on the principle that contemporary writers are by definition not yet canonical, the volume contains commentary on many prominent poets, as well as finding space for its contributors' enthusiasms for numerous less familiar figures. It has been organized to be read from cover to cover as an ever deepening exploration of a complex field, to be read in one or more of its five thematically structured sections, or indeed to be read by picking out single chapters or discussions of poets that particularly interest its individual readers.
