Item description for Re-Mapping Exile: Realities And Metaphors In Irish Literature And History (The Dolphin) by Michael Boss...
This volume of the Dolphin gathers a comprehensive selection of critical texts on New Zealand literature from international specialists in the field. Their essays fall into four main categories that, taken together, provide a useful overview of the New Zealand canon: postcolonial revisions of settler texts, sociological approaches to the Irish diaspora and the country's class structures, the Maori Renaissance, and feminist writings. Authors considered in depth include Hulme, Grace, Tuwhare, Ihimaera, Gee, Smithyman, Frame, Davin and Leggott. Specific contributions address topics ranging from the meeting house as a literary structure, to alchemy in The Bone People, to guardianship traditions in Maori writings. While scholars of New Zealand literature will find this collection invaluable, its representative nature will also make it a fine source of secondary readings for courses on postcolonial literatures.
