Thackeray’s literary significance lies in his contribution to the development of the novel

Thackeray’s literary significance lies in his contribution to the development of the novel. The History of Pendennis: His Fortunes and Misfortunes, His Friends and His Greatest Enemy (1848-1850) is an important book in any study of Thackeray’s technique, as it presents the background for the persona who was to narrate The Newcomes and as it shows Thackeray’s struggles with Victorian priggishness. In both The History of Pendennis and The Newcomes, Thackeray’s satirical edge had disappeared.

Unlike his contemporary poets, Chaucer does not follow the way of didacticism.

In the age of Chaucer, most of the poets used to compose allegorical poetry. It was a poetry, which had no relationship with the reality of the time. Chaucer’s major contributions also contain his lavish use of humour in his poetry. He may be regarded as the best and first humourist in the history of English literature. His Canterbury Tales reflect his tendency for humour to a great extent. Unlike his contemporary poets, Chaucer does not follow the way of didacticism. He wants to bring about smiles on the faces of his readers.

Although many scholars have addressed the central problems of interpretation in the work of James Joyce, less attention has been given to Joyce as a writer working within a specific literary and social context. This volume of 18 essays, distilled from a conference on Joyce and his contemporaries, focuses on Joyce's work from a variety of perspectives and examines his relationship to the Irish literary milieu and his connections to other writers and public figures of the period.

The first group of essays explores questions relating to narrative and characterization in The Dead, Finnegans Wake, Ulysses, and A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man. In the second part, the authors look at Joyce's use of fiction as a forum for statements on issues such as the role of the artists in society, Catholicism, economics, nationalist politics, and social reform. The third part traces Joyce's literary connections to Oscar Wilde, George Bernard Shaw, and Sean O'Casey, and the fourth discusses his influence on contemporary Irish poets and writers of fiction. The final chapters deal with several of Joyce's contemporaries, including the writers James Stephens and Padraic O'Conaire and the nationalist political leader Eamon de Valera. Illuminating both Joyce's work and the field of Irish letters in general, this collection will be a valuable resource or text for courses on Joyce, twentieth-century Irish literature, and modern fiction.
