Michael Patrick Gillespie, "James Joyce and the Exilic Imagination"
2015 | ISBN-10: 0813060656 | 192 pages | PDF | 1 MB
James Joyce left Ireland in 1904 in self-imposed exile. Though he never permanently returned to Dublin, he continued to characterize the city in his prose throughout the rest of his life. This volume elucidates the ways Joyce wrote about his homeland with conflicting bitterness and affection - a common ambivalence in expatriate authors, whose time in exile tends to shape their creative approach to the world. Yet this duality has not been explored in JoyceAEs work until now. The first book to read JoyceAEs writing through the lens of exile studies, challenges the tendency of scholars to stress the writerAEs negative view of Ireland. Instead, it showcases the often-overlooked range of emotional attitudes imbuing JoyceAEs work and produces a fuller understanding of JoyceAEs canon.
