This book investigates the role of literary criticism in the process of Irish decolonisation since the late eighteenth century, with special emphasis on the 1950s.Drawing on the work of both Irish and international commentators - including Edward Said, David Lloyd, Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak and Luke Gibbons - Gerry Smyth seeks to reconfigure the established relations between literature and criticism. Smyth then sets his analysis against a modular theory of decolonisation based on a reading of Irish history from the perspective of contemporary postcolonial and post-structural theory.Engaging with debates in a number of current fields, Decolonisation and Criticism challenges many assumptions and practices of Irish literary history.

Wissenschaftliche Publikationen werden heute fast nur noch in Englisch verfasst. Sowohl für das Verständnis englischsprachiger Fachliteratur als auch für das Verfassen eigener Publikationen braucht man dringend ein verlässliches Fachwörterbuch. Auch Wissenschaftlern, deren Muttersprache nicht Deutsch ist, wird es für das Verständnis deutschsprachiger Literatur eine große Hilfe sein. Volker Schweizer hat sich als erfahrener Übersetzer großer geologischer Lehrbücher eine hohe Kompetenz erworben und dieses Wörtebuch zusammengestellt.

YOU CHOOSE is an (anti)-choose-your-own-adventure. You choose: You hear a scream (or not), and what do you do about it. Nothing or stay in your chair and figure out the who what when why or go out the front door and chase the scream to prevent it or create it or capture it. Within the book are choices and non-choices, choices masquerading as choices, labyrinths, your torture and your self-torture, your authorship, multiple worlds, you becoming someone else, another you, you becoming a series of animals, you becoming us, you becoming death, your repeated death, pizza, your mother, inner ear workings, and other tailings or tails or tales. YOU CHOOSE is literary, speculative, uncertain, an attempt at the universal and many worlds, surreal, magically realistic, immersive, and labyrinthine.
