The art of Brian Friel : neither reality nor dreams by Elmer Kennedy-Andrews( Book )
15 editions published between 1994 and 1996 in English and held by 463 libraries worldwide
"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 )
17 editions published between 1990 and 1993 in English and held by 387 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

10 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 294 libraries worldwide
This volume reflects an evolving situation in Northern Ireland, where, according to the author, fiction has overtaken poetry and drama as the most significant and vital literary form.

The poetry of Derek Mahon by Ulster Symposium( Book )
6 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 246 libraries worldwide
"As the first major book-length study of the poetry of Derek Mahon, this volume of fourteen essays represents a long overdue account and assessment of one of the foremost living English language poets not only in Irish poetry but world-wide."--Jacket
Writing home : poetry and place in Northern Ireland, 1968-2008 by Elmer Kennedy-Andrews( Book )
7 editions published between 2008 and 2013 in English and held by 235 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."--book jacket
Ciaran Carson : critical essays ( Book )
6 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 207 libraries worldwide
These essays chart the development of Ciaran Carson's career, scrutinizing his experiments in a new urban poetics, including his obsessive concern with maps and labyrinths. The essays examine his interest in narrative, and explore the continuities between his poetry and his prose, and they consider his relation to various poetic traditions.--From publisher description

Northern Irish poetry : the American connection by Elmer Kennedy-Andrews( Book )
5 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 98 libraries worldwide
Taking a different approach from other studies of Northern Irish poetry which locate it within an Irish or British literary history, this book aims to elucidate its powerful transcultural dynamics, with specific reference to its American connections. Thus, through discussion of the ways in which major Northern Irish poets (Ciaran Carson, Padraic Fiacc, John Hewitt, Seamus Heaney, Michael Longley, Derek Mahon, Gerar̤id MacLochlainn, Louis MacNeice, Medbh McGuckian, John Montague, Paul Muldoon, Frank Ormsby) have been influenced by America, this study shows how Northern Irish poetry overspills national borders, complicating and enriching itself through cross-cultural interaction and hybridity, or struggles to preserve a sense of unique identity and local attachment in the face of globalization, interstitial migrancy, and postmodern skepticism
