By: Leonard Orr (editor)Hardback

1 - 2 weeks availability


On the surface, James Joyce's work is largely a political. Through most of the twentieth century he was the proud embodiment of the rootless intellectual. However, perspectives on the colonial history of Ireland have proliferated in recent years, yielding a subtle and complex conception of the Irish postcolonial experience that has become a major theme in current Joyce scholarship. Highly original and often provocative, these essays bring Joyce powerfully within the ambit of postcolonial studies.
