Most widely held works by Linden Peach
Toni Morrison by Linden Peach( Book )

45 editions published between 1995 and 2000 in English and Spanish and held by 1,889 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This succinct, critical introduction to Morrison's work seeks to make her novels more accessible through unravelling notions of self-representation and narrative structure which will be new to readers accustomed to Euro-American literary conventions. Without ghettoising Morrison as a black woman writer, this is the first major study of how the experimental narrative strategies of her fiction are determined by its African-American content. Linden Peach argues that her novels are most usefully approached through an examination of the innovative techniques which they employ and the creative possibilities these offer

Angela Carter by Linden Peach( Book )

23 editions published between 1997 and 2010 in English and held by 735 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It offers an in-depth discussion of Carter's much neglected first novel, Shadow Dance, and suggests fresh approaches to other texts, including Carter's indebtedness to Euro-American Gothic and her concern with carnivalesque and theatre as sites of illegitimate power. Carter's fiction is interpreted within frameworks derived from the work of Julia Kristeva, Jean Baudrillard, Melanie Klein and Bertolt Brecht
Virginia Woolf by Linden Peach( Book )

13 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 525 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Virginia Woolf is one of the great innovators of the modernist novel and a seminal figure in feminist writings. In this new book discussing the whole of Woolf's fiction, Linden Peach argues that Woolf was also a more sophisticated political thinker than has been generally recognised, interested in the complex relationship between history, politics, and language. In particular, Peach shows how Woolf's fiction explores the dialogic relationship between past and present and the coded and concealed meanings of public discourse."--Jacket
The contemporary Irish novel : critical readings by Linden Peach( Book )

12 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 351 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study offers critical readings of key contemporary Irish novels, employing a range of historical, psychoanalytic and theoretical approaches. Linden Peach examines texts by established writers, such as William Trevor's "Felicia's Journey" and John Banville's "Birchwood", alongside works by younger writers, including Roddy Doyle, Glenn Patterson and Kathleen Ferguson. Peach addresses the diversity of Irish fiction and the complexity of Northern Ireland and Ireland's history and culture, and considers different modes of writing and themes such as postmodernity, gender, family, fetishism, Catholicism, historical trauma and intercorporeality

The fiction of Emyr Humphreys : contemporary critical perspectives by Linden Peach( Book )

9 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 116 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Through detailed readings that highlight subjects such as gender identity, contested mascu1nities, war, pacifism, strangeness and 'otherness', problematic father and daughter relationships, and cultural discourse in complex linguistic environments, Peach suggests that Humphreys's work is best understood as dramatic, dissident and/or dilemma fiction rather than by the term Protestant novelist which Humphreys used to describe himself at the outset of his career. Stressing how Humphreys came to see himself as more of a protesting novelist, Peach examines how the dilemmas around which his fiction is based originally linked to Humphreys's definition of himself as a protestant writer increasingly become sites in which controversial, and often dark themes, are explored
