"Irishness" has often meant self-dramatization because Ireland is commonly represented as a nation of storytellers, musicians, and virtuoso performers. Like many of their characters, Joyce and Beckett were superb musicians, creators of performance, and they sought both to evoke and exhaust the resources and rhythms of language and performance. In this groundbreaking work, Alan W. Friedman explores the rich historical and literary backgrounds of this distinctly Irish phenomenon
