Overview

Did James Joyce, that icon of modernity, spearhead the dismantling of the Cartesian subject? Or was he a supreme example of a modern man forever divided and never fully known to himself? This volume reads the dialogue of contradictory cultural voices in Joyce's works—revolutionary and reactionary, critical and subject to critique, marginal and central. It includes ten essays—all but two of them published here for the first time—that identify repressed elements in Joyce's writings and examine how psychic and cultural repressions persistently surface in his texts.
