Fools of Fiction: Reading William Trevor’s Stories

Author: 
Ormsby-Lennon, Hugh
Credentials: 
Associate Professor of English, Villanova University

This is a major study of William Trevor’s acclaimed short stories and their place in the Irish literary landscape. A detailed discussion of the tradition of the Anglo-Irish short story, the cultural and economics of Trevor’s Ireland as well as the author’s use of the domestic voices of Irish and English women in the his works is included. This monograph proposes a new understanding of Trevor’s narrative theories and reiterates the importance of Trevor among modern Irish writers and discusses the author’s differing receptions among English and Irish readers. Trevor’s extensive use of fools( as well as a few knaves) and the uses of folly are extensively investigated.
