Product Description


“Feminist Literary Theory is an indispensable guide, companion and handbook for students and teachers of women’s literature. No other anthology offers so many bite-sized tasters of work on gendered authorship, literary production, critical reception, sexuality and genre – from romantic fiction to travel writing. Mary Eagleton’s clear and informative introductions contextualize the debates represented by each extract, suggest connections between them and point to further reading. This Third Edition maintains and develops the irreplaceable breadth of the previous editions with several new pieces on such areas as autobiography, science fiction and border talk. The extra section, ‘Writing Glocal’, investigates dynamically evolving dialogues between feminism and postcolonialism, diaspora narratives and transculturalism. Whether you read from start to finish or choose to sample selectively, this rich collection will expand your knowledge and understanding of feminist thought, both as an historical discipline and as an excitingly relevant and progressive set of ideas.”
Jane Dowson, De Montfort University.

From the Back Cover

The two-volume Companion to Irish Literature covers an unprecedented historical range of Irish literature from the Middle Ages to the present day. Featuring nearly 60 original essays written by a distinguished cast of literary scholars, the Companion explores poetry, drama, and fiction in both English- and Irish-language traditions. Volume One, dedicated to Irish literature from the medieval period to 1900, features essays on topics such as early modern annalists and nineteenth-century Famine writing, together with essays on canonical writers including Swift, Morgan, Carleton, LeFanu, and Wilde. The second volume follows the development of Irish literature through the twentieth century, covering key figures such as Joyce, Yeats, Synge, Beckett, Bowen, Friel, Heaney, Ní Dhomhnaill, McDonagh, and many more. The collection introduces readers to a range of contemporary approaches to Irish studies, from formalism to feminism, from biographical criticism to queer theory, and from new historicism to postcolonial theory. A Companion to Irish Literature is an invaluable and long-awaited resource to the sweeping scope of Ireland's rich literary history.
