Synopsis

This book contains a multicultural and multifaceted study of ideologies and conflicts related to the complex realities and fictions of Nation and Identity represented in contemporary literature written in English. The history and present time of the United Kingdom, the British Empire and North America provide vast fields of research which have been explored by our selection of authors. Their interests range from the moral and personal consequences of modern nationalist conflicts to the memories of old racial confrontations on the British soil. Readers will find analyses and reflections on the individual's pursuit of identity in a challenging environment that covers more than two centuries of mainly Western civilization and abound in national dilemmas, social concerns, authoritarian legacies, and problematic postcolonial hybridizations. Short stories, novels, plays and poems by Irish, American, English, Nigerian, and Scottish writers will enable readers to consider the diverse approaches, propositions and debates the issues raised by Nation and Identity are being dealt with.

Dr Jose Maria Gutierrez (Madrid, 1967) (PhD in English Philology, University of Alcala de Henares; Bachelor of Arts in Classical Philology - Complutense University, Madrid - ) is assistant teacher in the Department of Languages at San Antonio Catholic University of Murcia. He has published several articles in Selim (Journal of the Spanish Society for Medieval English Language and Literature), Estudios Clasicos (Journal of the Spanish Society for Classical Studies) and contributions in numerous conferences regarding Ancient Greek and Latin tradition in medieval English and contemporary British and American literature. He is currently preparing a book on the Trojan Cycle in Geoffrey Chaucer's works.
