The spectres of history haunt Irish fiction. In this compelling study, Matthew Schultz maps these rhetorical hauntings across a wide range of postcolonial Irish novels, and defines the spectre as a non-present presence that simultaneously symbolises and analyses an overlapping of Irish myth and Irish history.
By exploring this exchange between literary discourse and historical events, Haunted historiographies provides literary historians and cultural critics with a theory of the spectre that exposes the various complex ways in which novelists remember, represent and reinvent historical narrative. It juxtaposes canonical and non-canonical novels that complicate long-held assumptions about four definitive events in modern Irish history - the Great Famine, the Irish Revolution, the Second World War and the Northern Irish Troubles - to demonstrate how historiographical Irish fiction from James Joyce and Samuel Beckett to Roddy Doyle and Sebastian Barry is both a product of Ireland's colonial history and also the rhetorical means by which a post-colonial culture has emerged.

From the Author:

Paying particular attention to the rhetorical intersections of ideology and aesthetics in modern fiction, Matthew's scholarship explores how the inventive, convention-dismaying fiction of the early 20th century was authored as a response to the violent fragmentation of the world at war and subsequent de-colonization, while simultaneously an avant-garde aesthetic forged modernity.

About the Author:

Matthew Schultz is a literary scholar and novelist. A native Clevelander, he earned his B.A. (2003) and M.A. (2005) at John Caroll University, and his his Ph.D. in English Literature at Saint Louis University (2010), with areas of emphasis in modernism and Irish Studies. He teaches English and directs the Writing Center at Vassar College.
Matthew's teaching highlights the ways in which developments in modern literature emerge from their immediate cultural contexts, and also how literary texts look beyond their present moment and medium, revising models inherited from the past and anticipating future forms of literary expression.
