Beschreibung

This book examines the topic of excess in modern Irish writing in terms of mysticism, materialism, myth and language. The study engages ideas of excess as they appear in works by major thinkers from Hegel, Kierkegaard and Marx through to Nietzsche, Bataille, Derrida and, more recently, Badiou. Poems, plays and fiction by a wide range of Irish authors are considered. These include works by Oscar Wilde, W. B. Yeats, G. B. Shaw, Patrick Pearse, James Joyce, Sean O’Casey, Louis MacNeice, Samuel Beckett, Elizabeth Bowen, Roddy Doyle, Seamus Heaney, Marina Carr and Medbh McGuckian.  The readings presented illustrate how Matthew Arnold’s nineteenth-century idea of the excessive character of the Celt is itself exceeded within the modernity of twentieth-century Irish writing.

Rezension:

"There is much to admire and appreciate in McAteer's book. The breadth and scope of his knowledge of Irish literature, current and past Irish literary criticism, and Continental philosophy is evident throughout the book. McAteer moves easily between these disciplines, presenting his work in clear and accessible prose. ... Bringing new and interesting theoretical frameworks to this emerging work as McAteer does represents a possible way forward." (Michael Gillingham, Irish Studies Review, Vol. (28) 4, 2020)
