Course Description

Niall Griffiths is one of the most prolific British writers working today. His debut novel Grits (2000) established him as a unique Anglo-Welsh literary voice. Griffiths is preoccupied with the lives of the disenfranchised in contemporary Britain with a keen ear for the diversity of regional dialects and sociolects which significantly shape the unique linguistic makeup of his texts. Landscape, history, myth as well as the lives of ordinary people speak through Griffiths’s novels and poetry, making his texts emphatically polyphonous and intertextual. Griffiths’s work is also guided by a political sensibility: novels like Sheepshagger (2001) deal with the echoes of Wales’ postcolonial past, while his most recent Broken Ghost (2019) is an urgent state-of-the-nation novel about Brexit Britain.
In this seminar we will analyse selected novels by taking into consideration narrative voice, the challenges of writing and reading demotic voices and regional dialects as well as cultural, social and political contexts.
