The Poor Bugger's Tool(the title taking its name from the veiled but unmistakable reference in the 'Cyclops' episode in Ulysses to Roger Casement, the homosexual humanitarian and Irish patriot hanged for treason in 1916), argues that queer culture has a vital role to play in the creation of a reinvigorated national image, for the Republic and Northern Ireland. Looking back to the first wave of Irish modernism in the works of Oscar Wilde, John Millington Synge, Roger Casement, and James Joyce, Patrick R. Mullen reveals how these writers deployed queer aesthetics to shape inclusive forms of national affiliation as well as to sharpen anti-imperialist critiques. Turning to Ireland's postmodernist boom in the works of Patrick McCabe, Neil Jordan, and Jamie O'Neill, Mullen shows that queer sensibilities and style remain key cultural resources for negotiating the political and economic realities of globalization.

Review:

This book is original, intelligent, and persuasively argued. Mullen is a wonderful close reader of literary language and textual moments. The Poor Bugger's Tool contributes substantially to recent work in queer studies, Irish studies, modernism, and postcolonial studies. (Marjorie Howes, author of Colonial Crossings: Figures in Irish Literary History)

researchers and scholars from a number of disciplines will find this volume, The Poor Buggers Tool: Irish Modernism, Queer Labor, and Postcolonial History, filled with stimulating discussions regarding the convergences of economic forces, queer sexualities and postcolonial identities in Ireland and Irish culture(s). (Robert Finnigan, Irish Studies Review)

With The Poor Buggers Tool, Patrick Mullen makes an important contribution to the still emerging strain of Irish studies informed by both queer theory and postcolonial criticism. It is impossible to do justice to the intricacies of Mullens thesis here, especially given the broad range of his study. (Patrick Bixby, Canadian Journal of Irish Studies)
