The interwar years (1918-1939) were a turbulent time in Ireland. With the aftermath of the 1916 Easter Rising, the Irish Civil War and the formation of the Irish Free State in 1922, Ireland was a nation in upheaval and at war with itself. The symbiotic relationship between the formation of the Irish Free State and the poetry that was produced during the interwar period is of particular if sometimes neglected importance to the canon of Irish Modernism. This panel discussion invites participants to look more deeply at the body of work that came at the end of the Irish Literary Revival and led to the formation of Irish Modernism.
This panel reflects on the place of confusion in British and American modernism. Confusion has not been traditionally considered a proper scholarly response to textual analysis; critics are supposed to interpret a text rather than allow themselves to experience its uncertainties. What happens when we explore the confusion we feel when reading not as something to be worked through, but as something to be worked with? Building on affect theorists’ work on how our feelings can influence the way we read, such as Eve Sedgwick’s reparative reading and Rita Felski’s reflective and post-critical reading, how can considering confusion change both our experience of reading and our critical practices?
