New publication: The Joyce Country: Literary Scholarship and Irish Culture by David Pierce

This new book by the eminent critic provides an informative and timely survey of contemporary approaches to Joyce and modern Irish writing over almost 40 years.

In a fresh opening survey Pierce explores the new departure for fiction heralded by A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man, and this is followed by essays on the hybrid landscape in Ulysses and on the distinctive style and humour of the ‚ÄėEumaeus‚Äô episode. Other pieces focus on the appeal of Irish short-story writer, Benedict Kiely, anthologies of Irish writing, and Irish writing in the years 2006-9.

The second half of The Joyce Country is devoted to twenty-six reviews of books about Joyce written from the 1980s to the present and grouped under several headings including ‚ÄėJoyce‚Äôs European Cities‚Äô, ‚ÄėJoyce, Yeats and the Matter of Ireland‚Äô, ‚ÄėUlysses in Perspective‚Äô, and ‚ÄėJoyce and Modernism‚Äô.

‚ÄúDavid Pierce‚Äôs latest collection represents a new approach to scholarly stock-taking. It is a wonderfully reflexive, discursive, and deeply informative book which will delight scholars of Joyce and modern Irish writing. A tour de force offering a handy access to Pierce‚Äôs influential criticism.‚ÄĚ – Jolanta Wawrzycka, Professor of English at Radford University, Virginia and Trustee of the James Joyce Foundation.
