"Elmer Andrews's The Art of Brian Friel is a critical study of Friel's entire oeuvre, relating Friel's work to the problems of subjectivity, representation, history and the body which have exercised many recent thinkers and theorists. Andrews's aim is to offer some placement of Friel in relation to both postmodernism and traditional humanism."--Jacket

Seamus Heaney : a collection of critical essays by Elmer Kennedy-Andrews( Book )

21 editions published between 1990 and 1993 in English and held by 398 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this volume Elmer Andrews has collected eleven essays addressing the entire poetic oeuvre of Seamus Heaney up to and including Seeing Things and the verse play The Cure at Troy. The eleven writers include poets and critics of distinction from Britain and America as well as from Ireland. They examine a wide variety of aspects of Heaney's work, and open up, from various angles, the sources, directions, continuities and purposes of Heaney's career to date. Heaney has always been ready to try new things: these essays are designed to help the reader get a clearer picture of the 'figure in the carpet'. The poetry is analysed and assessed in its own right, but it is also discussed in relation to its literary, social and historical contexts. A spectrum of approaches is represented, from traditional humanist perspectives to those of post-structuralist, political and cultural criticism. In their concern with the values embodied in Heaney's acts of language, these essays make an important contribution to the contemporary cultural debate in Ireland. The book is essential reading for anyone interested in the poetry of Seamus Heaney and in contemporary poetry in general

Writing home : poetry and place in Northern Ireland, 1968-2008 by Elmer Kennedy-Andrews( Book )

8 editions published between 2008 and 2013 in English and held by 239 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ideas of home, place and identity have been continually questioned, re-imagined and re-constructed in Northern Irish poetry. Concentrating on the period since the outbreak of the Troubles in the late 1960s, this study provides a detailed consideration of the work of several generations of poets, from Hewitt and MacNeice, to Fiacc and Montague, to Simmons, Heaney, Mahon and Longley, to Muldoon, Carson, Paulin and McGuckian, to McDonald, Morrissey, Gillis and Flynn. It traces the extent to which their writing represents a move away from concepts of rootedness and towards a deterritorialized poetics of displacement, mobility, openness and pluralism in an era of accelerating migration and globalisation."--Jacket

6 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 212 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
