The Fiction of Emyr Humphreys PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Fiction of Emyr Humphreys free pdf This will be the first in-depth study of Humphreys -described by R. S. Thomas as 'the supreme interpreter of Welsh life in English'. In it, Peach will discuss the principal thematic concerns of his writing and link his work to contemporary critical agendas. It will offer readers the first discussion of Land of the Living and subsequent works such as Old People are a Problem. It will constitute a positive re-appraisal of Humphreys's work, highlighting issues that, as it happens, now drive contemporary critical agendas such as nation, nationhood and identity, religion and conflict, spirituality and socio-economic change, gender issues, the body, and the environment. It will highlight for the first time the strong psychoanalytic dimension of his work.
