Editorial Reviews

"There is no doubt that this collection is a must read if we are to understand and untangle the many paradoxes which lie at the core of modern Irish literature." - Papers on Joyce

"Irish Modernism and the Global Primitive accomplishes what it sets out to do: expand the discussion more or less initiated by Garrigan Mattar, expanding it especially in the direction of Joyce." - James Joyce Literary Supplement
