Abstract [en]

In the last few years, the issue of postnationalism has encouraged an intense debate reflected in the publication of numerous specialised books and articles in various fields of study, including politics, history, philosophy, and anthropology. However, the work produced in Irish literary criticism has been much sparser. This collection of essays aims to fill this gap and provide a new insight into the debate on postnationalism in Ireland from the perspective of narrative writing. The book collects fourteen essays produced by academics from various countries, including Ireland, the United States, and Sweden. It analyses the concepts of the postnational and the postnationalist in relationship to globalisation, the debate this postnationalist discourse has opened in various fields of knowledge, and its definitions and implications in the contemporary Irish historical and literary context. The literary forms under consideration include essay writing, drama, fiction, autobiography, film, and poetry. The authors whose work is analysed here include Hubert Butler, Brian Friel, Dermot Bolger, Conor McPherson, Marie Jones, Frank McGuinness, Nuala O’Faolain, Robert MacLiam Wilson, Seamus Heaney, Ciaran Carson, Derek Mahon, David Wheatley, and Sinéad Morrissey, Moya Cannon, Paula Meehan and Nuala Ní Dhomhnaill
