Journey Westward means that James Joyce was once drawn to the west of eire as a spot of authenticity and freedom. It examines how this acute sensibility is mirrored in Dubliners via a sequence of coded nods and winks, posing new and revealing questions about essentially the most enduring and resonant collections of brief tales ever written. The solutions are a fusion of historical past and literary feedback, using shut readings that stability the thoughts of realism and symbolism. the result's a startlingly unique research that opens up clean methods of brooding about Joyce’s masterpieces.

In difficult Thicket: a few overdue Modernist Poetries, Mark Scroggins writes with wit and sprint a couple of attention-grabbing diversity of key 20th- and twenty-first-century poets and writers. In nineteen full of life and available essays, he persuasively argues that the strategies of modernist verse weren't changed via postmodernism, yet really these concepts proceed to infuse modern writing and poetry with highbrow and aesthetic richness.
