1 - 2 weeks availability


This selection of essays focuses broadly on social, cultural and historical aspects of age and ageing, using nonlinear perspectives to explore how each topic might be applied to James Joyce and his writings. With a special view that examines non-traditional connections suggested by chaos theory as applied to the humanities, these writers offer a new and unconventional reading of the Joyce canon.
