The politics of enchantment

First Edition

Tara Stubbs

Published by Manchester University Press

  • Responds to the work of critics such as Paul Giles and Wai Chee Dimock
  • Asks why modernist American writers actively chose Ireland as a focus of cultural inspiration
  • In-depth archival research in the US and Ireland lends the project critical authority
  • The 'politics of enchantment' framework considers the moments when American modernists became enchanted or disenchanted by Ireland DS and to understand the reasons behind these
  • Irish-American criticism has tended either to analyse specific instances of cultural interaction between the two countries, not to assess the value of that interaction
