Classics and Celtic Literary Modernism: Yeats, Joyce, MacDiarmid and Jones
Traces multivocal receptions of classics across political and linguistic nationalisms of twentieth-century Ireland, Scotland and Wales, and shows how they provoked experimental literary forms of modernist collusion and resistance - aesthetic idioms whose use of antiquity interrogated the aims of Celtic 'nation-building' in the British Isles.
