James Joyce And Nationalism from the Author: Emer Nolan. James Joyce and Nationalism comprehensively revises our understanding of Joyce by re-examining his writing against Irish Nationalism. In this exciting and provocative book, Emer Nolan looks at the relationship between modernism and nationalism, tracing the applicability of alternative notions of nationalism to the various phases of Joyce's work. Nolan also brings post-colonial and feminist theories to a close re-reading of Joyce's works. This insightful and challenging work provides a polemical introduction to Joyce and is a much needed contribution to the vast field of Joyce studies. James Joyce and Nationalism is a ground-breaking and theoretically engaged intervention into debates about Joyce's politics and the politics of modernism.

A Portrait Of The Artist As A Young Man from the Author: James Joyce. A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man is the first novel of Irish writer James Joyce. A K├╝nstlerroman in a modernist style, it traces the intellectual and religio-philosophical awakening of young Stephen Dedalus, a fictional alter ego of Joyce and an allusion to Daedalus, the consummate craftsman of Greek mythology. Stephen questions and rebels against the Catholic and Irish conventions under which he has grown, and culminates with his self-exile from Ireland in Europe. The work uses techniques that Joyce developed more fully in Ulysses. The early youth of Stephen Dedalus is recounted at a vocabulary level of Stephen's own as he grows, in a voice not his own but sensitive to his feelings. The reader experiences Stephen's fears and bewilderment as he comes to terms with the world in a series of disjointed episodes. Stephen attends school at Jesuit-run Clongowes Wood College, where the apprehensive, intellectually gifted boy suffers the ridicule of his classmates while he learns the schoolboy codes of behaviour. While he cannot grasp their significance, at a Christmas dinner he is witness to the social, political, and religious tensions in Ireland involving Charles Stewart Parnell that drives bitter wedges between members of his family, leaving Stephen with doubts over which social institutions he can place his faith in.[16] Back at Clongowes, word spreads that a number of older boys have been caught "smugging"; discipline is tightened, and the Jesuits increase use of corporal punishment. Stephen is strapped when one of his instructors believes he has broken his glasses to avoid studying; prodded by his classmates, Stephen works up the courage to complain to the rector Father Conmee, who assures him there will be no such recurrence, leaving Stephen with a sense of triumph.

The Word According To James Joyce from the Author: Cordell D. K. Yee. "This book argues for a more conservative view of Joyce's place in the history of critical theory than the view held by scholars. For years interpretation of Joyce's views on language has proceeded on the assumption that an avant-garde writer requires an avant garde theory. It has been suggested that critical theory has just begun to catch up with Joyce, and that we are now able to see Joyce for what he was. In his denial that language refers to anything but itself and in his undoing representation, Joyce anticipates contemporary developments in the history of critical theory. Contrary to modern criticism, Joyce does not abandon representation, the idea that language affords access to reality." "This study finds an Aristotelian underpinning for much of Joyce's thinking on language and representation. Language is primarily an aural phenomenon, but knowledge, according to Aristotle, is grounded mainly in vision. In Dubliners and A Portrait Joyce tries to make language as efficient a cognitive tool as vision. According to this study, his solution lies in a systematic conception of language, which entails a correspondence theory of representation which provides an explanation of how verbal art, apprehended temporally, can approximate the directness and immediacy of visual art, which is apprehended spatially." "Viewed historically, however, language as system has its limitations - a tenuous stability; it does not provide a stable "surface" for reflecting extralinguistic reality. This book argues that this fact does not mean that reality is inaccessible through language, but complicates the task of recovering it. Joyce's response is to redefine the connection between language and the real. In his work from Ulysses on, this study argues, he increasingly realizes a resemblance theory of representation, a conception of language as process - one that emphasizes the aural and temporal properties of language. Joyce, however, does not totally reject a systemic conception of language. In Finnegans Wake he attempts a synthesis of the linguistics of time and space." "According to this study, the problem of representation for Joyce resolves into that of translating sensory experience into language. His focus on this problem allies him, to a certain extent, with modernist writers like Ezra Pound (ideogrammic method), T. S. Eliot (objective correlative), and Gertrude Stein (continuous present), who profess to be strengthening the connection between word and object. The modernists therefore cannot be seen as precipitating, much less initiating, a retreat from the word." "This interpretation of Joyce's works might seem to be at odds with his reputation for experimentalism, his radical departures from traditional literary techniques. There is, however, no such discrepancy, not even with Finnegans Wake. Joyce's innovations are motivated by a desire to revivify traditional notions about the powers of language to communicate and to represent the world."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
