Courses: Topics in Irish Literature: Joyce/Beckett (ENGLH372B01)

Spring 2012

Looks at the work of these two major figures as epitomizing an Irish rhetoric in post-colonial reading which "enacts a movement that begins in aphasia and ends in eloquence" [Seamus Deane], in this case in a comprehensive reading of Joyce in the most prolix of texts, Ulysses and Finnegans Wake, and Beckett, where texts seemingly court in silence their own undoing.
