Rather than construe him as a postmodernist, it correctly locates OBriens work as the product of a late modernist sensibility and cultural context.

Similarly, while there should be no doubt of his Irishness, and his profound debts to Irish language, history and culture, this collection seeks to understand OBriens nationally sensitive achievement as the work of an internationalist whose preoccupations reflect global modernist trends.The distinct themes and concerns tracked in Flann OBrien & Modernism include characterization in branching narrative forms- the ethics and paradoxes of naming- parody and homage- lies and deception- theatricality- sexuality- technology and transport- and the inevitable matter of drink and intoxication.

Taken together, these specific topics construct a mosaic image of OBrien as an exemplary modernist auteur, abreast of all the most salient philosophical and technical concerns affecting literary production in the period immediately before and after World War Two.
