9780198745150: Louis MacNeice and the Irish Poetry of His Time (Oxford English Monographs)

This study focuses on Louis MacNeice's creative and critical engagement with other Irish poets during his lifetime. It draws on extensive archival research to uncover the previously unrecognized extent of the poet's contact with Irish literary mores and networks. Poetic dialogues with contemporaries including F.R. Higgins, John Hewitt, W.R. Rodgers, Austin Clarke, Patrick Kavanagh, John Montague, and Richard Murphy are traced against the persistent rhetoric of cultural and geographical attachment at large in Irish poetry and criticism during the period. These comparative readings are framed by accounts of MacNeice's complex relationship with the oeuvre of W.B. Yeats, which forms a meta-narrative to MacNeice's broader engagement with Irish poetry. Yeats is shown to have been MacNeice's contemporary in the 1930s, reading and reacting to the younger poet's work, just as MacNeice read and reacted to the older poet's work. But the ongoing challenge of the intellectual and formal complexity of Yeats's poetry also provided a means through which MacNeice, across his whole career, dialectically developed various modes through which to confront modernity's cultural, political and philosophical challenges. This book offers new and revisionary perspectives on MacNeice's work and its relationship to Ireland's literary traditions, as well as making an innovative contribution to the history of Irish literature and anglophone poetry in the twentieth century.

About the Author:


Tom Walker was educated at the University of Oxford (B.A. and D.Phil.) and at Trinity College Dublin (M.Phil.), where he is now the Ussher Assistant Professor in Irish Writing. He has published articles on several aspects of Irish literature and culture. This is his first book.

Review:

a rich contribution to the scholarship on MacNeice and on twentieth-century Irish letters. * James Underwood, Modern Language Review * Walker offers ground-breaking research on this critically overlooked aspect of MacNeice's work * Forum for Modern Language Studies * Tom Walker's new study, Louis MacNeice and the Irish Poetry of his Time, adds much to this story ... Walker reveals a new MacNeice * Justin Quinn, Times Literary Supplement * Tom Walker's study is a much-needed and meticulously referenced work on this vital poet, playwright, and broadcaster. It sets MacNeice's work productively in dialogue with both the great W.B. Yeats and lesser-known poets, and is essential for anyone captivated by this most incorrigibly plural of writers. * Caroline Magennis, Times Higher Education Books of 2015 *
