This book scrutinizes the way modern Irish writers exploited or surrendered to primitivism, and how primitivism functions as an idealized nostalgia for the past as a potential representation of difference and connection.

MEDIA REVIEWS

" Irish Modernism and the Global Primitive is a very timely intervention in the new Irish studies.The topic of primitivism is everywhere in Irish and post-colonial studies, but only sporadically has it been given sustained attention; the strength of this collection is that it returns our attention to this fundamental topic at what is perhaps a key moment in the development of the new Irish studies. It is, overall, a wonderful and exciting collection." - Enda Duffy, Professor and Graduate Advisor, Department of English, University of California, Santa Barbara
