Book Description

1 Oct 2013
William Trevor: Revaluations offers a comprehensive examination of the oeuvre of one of the most accomplished and celebrated practitioners writing in the English language: the author of fifteen novels, three novellas and eleven volumes of short stories, as well as plays, radio and TV adaptations and film screenplays. Drawing on the talents of a team of distinguished international scholars, this volume shines a critical light on Trevor's core concerns with individuality and the family, and cultural and national identity, extending significantly the scope of current scholarship. Essays scrutinise the author's prolonged concern with domestic, communal and national violence, his interrogation of patterns of inheritance and ideological heritage, and the impact of the past on choices his characters make. William Trevor: Revaluations is a groundbreaking collection of essays, and will also be seen as a definitive introduction to the work of a major contemporary novelist and short-story writer.

More About the Author

Michael Parker (1949- )is an academic writer who specialises in books and essays on Irish Literature, Northern Irish History and Literature, Postcolonial Literatures, and British Writing since 1945. After years teaching English in secondary schools and a spell in Poland at the University of Lodz, he grew increasingly interested in research. Shortly before his first book was published, Seamus Heaney: The Making of the Poet (Macmillan/ University of Iowa Press, 1993), he moved into higher education in the UK and in 2000 became a Professor of English Literature. He was made a Fellow of the English Association in 2009, and a year later gained a substantial award from the UK's Arts and Humanities Research Council. He spent the first four months of 2012 as a Visiting Professor at the Sorbonne Nouvelle in Paris.

He regularly gives invited lectures in Britain, Ireland, Europe and the United States. His most recent publication is William Trevor: Revaluations (Manchester UP 2013), co-edited with Paul Delaney. Currently he is at work on Seamus Heaney: Legacies, Afterlives, a comprehensive critical study of Heaney's poetry, translations, drama and criticism, due out from Palgrave Macmillan in 2015.
