About this book

Irish writing in the modernist era is often regarded as a largely rural affair, engaging with the city in fleeting, often disparaging ways, with Joyce cast as a defiant exception. This book shows how an urban modernist tradition, responsive to the particular political, social, and cultural conditions of Dublin, emerged in Ireland at this time.

Reviews

“This study provides a useful historic reminder of architectural modes and issues and recalls the first professional manifestation of town planning in Ireland … . this is an essential … addition to the burgeoning analysis of the birth pangs of Irish town planning.” (Fergal MacCabe, Pleanáil, Issue 21, 2015-2016)

"James Joyce, Urban Planning, and Irish Modernism makes a worthy contribution to scholarship on the city of Dublin as central to 'local,' nationalist, and internationalist dimensions of Irish modernist production. Lanigan's examination of the theory and practice of urban planning in the production of Irish literary culture (material, narratological, and conceptual) fills a significant gap in Joyce studies, modernist studies, and studies of modern Irish literature." - Desmond Harding, Central Michigan University, USA
