This course will focus on the work of key fiction writers from the mid twentieth century to the present.  It will consider how female authors have distinctively moulded literary genres such as the Bildungsroman to create space for feminocentric plots, subaltern voices and social critique.  The political and social contexts of the fictions they produced will be examined and their central and perennial preoccupations with mother-daughter relationships and the viewpoint of the child or the disruptive but abjected outsider will be scrutinised.  The depiction of change in Irish society and of space and the familial will be examined and the interplay between the mythic and the naturalistic will be considered.   Special attention will also be given to sibling relations in these fictions and to the depiction of emotional and sexual abuse.

Beckett has frequently been seen as a postmodernist writer whose work is placeless and eschews particularity and national affiliation.  This course by contrast will focus on the historical, materialist, and political dimensions of Beckett’s writing.  It will also examine the ways in which Beckett weaves Irish themes and tropes into his plays and fictions or uses them as muted subtexts.  Central attention will be given to the symbol of the body in pain in his oeuvre and to its materialist dimensions and signifying power.  Additionally, this module will track the trajectory of Beckett’s career and consider the increasing espousal of “lessness” and an aesthetics of attrition in his texts.
