Summary: From The Commitments and the Booker Prize-winning Paddy Clarke Ha Ha Ha, to The Woman Who Walked into Walls and A Star Called Henry, it could be argued that Roddy Doyle is the most successful and popular Irish writer of the 1990s. However, his popularity and perceived anti-intellectual thrust have caused many critics to refuse to recognize him as "literary." This book argues that Doyle's representation of working-class Dublin has broken with the traditional literary view of the Irish as a homogenous "people" and has given voice to a little-heard side of modern Ireland. Doyle is a realistic novelist, a comic social-satirist and, most recently, a brilliantly inventive parodist whose fictions cohere around a single focal concern: the defense of the individual's struggle to live with dignity and decency in the face of overwhelming odds. Setting Doyle's novels in the context of the recent seismic changes that have shaken Irish society. Codice inventario libreria

Descrizione libro The Liffey Press, Ireland, 2004. Paperback. Condizione libro: New. 219 x 139 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Roddy Doyle is the most successful Irish writer to emerge in the 1990s. All of his novels have been bestsellers, from the early Barrytown Trilogy (The Commitments, The Snapper, The Van), all of which have been filmed, through the Booker Prize-winning Paddy Clarke Ha Ha Ha, and up to his revisionist A Star Called Henry. It is largely because of this popularity, and of the perceived anti-intellectual thrust of his fiction, that many critics have refused to recognise him as literary . Others have criticised him for his unflattering depictions of modern Ireland. Doyle himself has long refused to participate in such pigeon-holing. Dermot McCarthy argues that Doyle s representation of working-class Dublin - in effect, an urban Ireland that had never been represented in Irish fiction or film before - has broken with the traditional literary view of the Irish as a homogeneous people and has given a voice to a little-heard side of modern Ireland. His characters feel no connection to the nationalist or colonialist versions of Irish history and identity, but rather they negotiate a culture that is a complex processor of exogenous (largely American) influences and indigenous adaptation and assimilation. Doyle is a realistic novelist, a comic social-satirist, and latterly, a brilliantly inventive parodist whose fictions cohere around a single focal concern: the defence of the individual s struggle to live with dignity and decency in the face of all those forces which attempt to coerce the individual into accepting the way things are. Setting Doyle s six novels in the context of the seismic changes that have shaken Irish society in the last twenty years, McCarthy stakes a claim for Doyle as Ireland s pre-eminent chronicler of modern Ireland.
