"What is really winning about this essay collection is that without any prompting or editorial proselytizing, receptive readers will come away from ReJoycing, not only with a number of new insights into various stories but with an enlarged critical repertoire." James Joyce Literary Supplement
"Draws on the best of two important trends in Joyce criticism: the traditional commitment to probing Joyce's complex language and the more recent effort to track down political and ideological meanings in his works." Robert Spoo
"Attests to the continuing interest in Joyce's 'realist' portrait if his native city and the importance of Dubliners in the development of his genius." Shari Benstock
Thirteen contributions address Joyce's collection of stories, illuminating the prominent issues in contemporary Joyce criticism. The essays reveal Joyce as alternately using and subverting the literary, cultural, and political movements of his times. Subjects of study include: themes; style; the significance of titles; the intertextual element; etymology; translations; geometric structures; and political, linguistic, narrative, and gender conflicts.
