Omtale Anglo-Irish Modernism and the Maternal
"Anglo Irish Modernism and the Maternal" argues that a focus on the construction of mother figures in Irish culture illuminates the extraordinary achievement of the Irish modernists. Essentially, the seminal Irish modernists Moore, Joyce, Synge, Yeats and O'Casey resisted those mother figures sanctioned by cultural discourses, re-writing her in order to elude her. In this, they not only re-constituted language and representation, they accessed and re-figured their own creative selves.
