Terry Eagleton, Fredric Jameson - Nationalism, Colonialism, and Literature

The three essays presented
here have in common with one another and with the Field
Day enterprise the conviction that we need a new discourse
for a new relationship between our idea of the human subject
and our idea of human communities. What is now happening
in Ireland, most especially in Northern Ireland (constitutionally
an integral part of the United Kingdom), is only
one of the many crises that have made the need for such a
discourse peremptory. In Africa, South America, the Middle
East, the Soviet Union, and Eastern Europe, the nature of
the crisis is more glaringly exposed and its consequences
seem both more ominous and far-reaching in their effects.
Nevertheless, the Irish-English collision has its own importance.
Ireland is the only Western European country that has
had both an early and a late colonial experience. Out of
that, Ireland produced, in the first three decades of this century,
a remarkable literature in which the attempt to overcome
and replace the colonial experience by something
other, something that would be "native" and yet not provincial,
was a dynamic and central energy.
