Overview

"The Anglo-Irish Novel" examines the flowering of fiction during a period of great social and political turbulence. Dr. Cronin argues that the verbal and stylistic experimentations of such innovative writers as Joyce, Beckett, and Flann O'Brien had their origins in the nineteenth century when native writers were struggling to express themselves in a developing idiom. As well as illustrating the period and the problems of the time, the novels discussed are in themselves all works of significance. Separate chapters examine novels by George Moore, Daniel Corkery, James Stephens, James Joyce, Elizabeth Bowen, Kate O'Brien, Samuel Beckett, Frank O'Connor, Sean O'Faolain and Flann O'Brien. Each chapter includes a biographical note on the author under discussion and a selected bibliography.
