New Publication: Laying Out the Bones: Death and Dying in the Modern Irish Novel

Laying Out the Bones: Death and Dying in the Modern Irish Novel by Bridget English. The author holds a PhD in English from Maynooth University in Ireland.
The book explores the ways in which death shapes the structure, form, and development of the Irish novel.

“An original study of a curiously neglected topic in Irish literary studies. With a display of impressive scholarly authority, English ranges from Joyce‚Äôs¬†Ulysses¬†to Enright‚Äôs¬†The Gathering¬†by way of Beckett, Kate O‚ÄôBrien and McGahern. She argues that the Irish novel is a secularizing medium that disenchants traditional Catholic conceptions of death and dying but also registers the fear and trembling that all post-religious societies feel in the face of death stripped of sacred consolations or philosophical certainties. This thoughtful, compelling study will open up a whole new set of discussions and debates in Irish Studies.”‚ÄĒEmer Nolan, Maynooth University

“A rich, provocative and lyrical meditation on the treatment of death and dying in the work of a wide range of modern Irish writers. English shows that novels provide a secularizing society with a form through which to confront the ultimate experience. Her prose is subtle and poised: and her insights are profound and original.”‚ÄĒDeclan Kiberd, author of¬†The Irish Writer and the World
