  • The Space Between Fiction and Reality: Uncovering the Real Lizzie Twigg

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Lizzie Twigg owes whatever claim to fame she has in literary history to James Joyce’s satiric send-up of her in Ulysses as a blue-stocking, a suffragette, a theosophist, or some combination of all three. Joyce is known to have settled scores in real life with some of his thinly veiled “fictional” characters, and sometimes he did not bother to change names. This may be the case with Twigg, but we lack any evidence of personal animus between them. Born Eliza Ann Twigg in India just months before Joyce, she spent the majority of her life in Limerick.1 Twigg was an only child who never married, and her social and economic background was not distinguished. Despite these origins, she published numerous poems, including ... Read More

  • A Royal Divorce: Background, Summary, and Commentary

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Near the outset of Finnegans Wake I.2, the character previously identified as HCE is reintroduced as the guest of honor, seated in his “viceregal booth,” attending a command performance of A Royal Divorce, by W. G. Wills.1 In the 5 September 1957 issue of The James Joyce Review, James S. Atherton gives an account of this play in the light of its Finnegans Wake appearances.2 Having acquired a copy from the Lord Chamberlain’s Office and interviewed playgoers who had attended stagings, Atherton concludes that “for once Joyce is remembering what he saw instead of what he heard or read” (Royal 39). Accordingly, while reprinting the stage directions for one scene, the tableau of the Battle of Waterloo, and quoting ... Read More

  • Hope, Hunger, and Spiritual Liberation in Joyce’s Dubliners

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: This essay begins from the premise that the many moments of humiliation and defeat in Joyce’s Dubliners are also moments in which characters hope for something better than is offered by the present world.1 Hope, as articulated in the work of Ernst Bloch,2 is an historical, forward-looking process, open to possibilities not necessarily imaginable in advance, resistant to apotheosis, and linked to the socioeconomic conditions of hunger. Through this lens, my essay departs from both classical and poststructuralist “paralysis” readings of Joyce and reconceives the politics of spiritual liberation in Dubliners as a dialectic between hope and hunger. It dissociates epiphany from both the classical function of narrative ... Read More

  • Mētis in Modern Life

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Modernist studies has turned to the ordinary in the last ten years, but where Joyce is concerned, we might better say “turned back.”1 Richard Ellmann had already declared its importance at the head of his monumental biography:The initial and determining act of judgment in [Joyce’s] work is the justification of the commonplace. Other writers had labored tediously to portray it, but no one knew what the commonplace really was until Joyce had written. There is nothing like Joyce’s commonplace in Tolstoy, where the characters, however humble, live dramatically and instill wisdom or tragedy in each other. Joyce was the first to endow an urban man of no importance with heroic consequence. . . . Joyce’s discovery, so ... Read More

  • “The flow of the language it is. The thoughts”: On Time and Thoughts
           and Movement in Ulysses

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Almost every introduction to Ulysses mentions that Joyce paid enormous attention to the movements of his characters, calculating very precisely their walking speed to make sure that they could reach their destinations in time and, in the course of their wanderings, always be present at those locations where other characters could be met or spotted. Among Frank Budgen’s most often-quoted reminiscences is his image of Joyce as an “engineer at work with compass and slide-rule, a surveyor with theodolite and measuring chain or, more Ulyssean perhaps, a ship’s officer taking the sun, reading the log and calculating current drift and leeway.”1 He later offered a more realistic observation when he wrote that “Joyce wrote ...

  • “Here He Ponders Things That Were Not”: Potentiality and Actuality in
           Joyce’s Ulysses

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Undoubtedly, rivers of ink have been spilled on the famous lines of the opening section of James Joyce’s “Nestor” episode in Ulysses, where Stephen ponders things that were not:Had Pyrrhus not fallen by a beldam’s hand in Argos or Julius Caesar not been knifed to death. They are not to be thought away. Time has branded them and fettered they are lodged in the room of the infinite possibilities they have ousted. But can those have been possible seeing that they never were' Or was that only possible which came to pass'1Yet not enough words have been spent on understanding the meaning of the Aristotelian concepts that Stephen invokes to answer his own questions: “It must be a movement then, an actuality of the ...

  • Nora: A Love Story of Nora and James Joyce by Nuala O’Connor
           (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: When I opened Nuala O’Connor’s Nora: A Love Story of Nora and James Joyce, I expected a biographical work. But the first segment stunned me with its vivid sexual description of their first date: “So I unbutton him, put my hand into his drawers, and wrap cool fingers around his heat. A gasp. I work him slow, slow, fast until he’s pleasured, until my fist is warm and wet from him” (2). And as the story continues, with a first-person narration about Nora Barnacle’s relationship with James Joyce, it becomes clear that this is a fictional work, a novel, a biographical novel,1 as some reviewers call it. Just to verify the potential accuracy of this version of Nora’s first date with Joyce, I checked Brenda Maddox’s 1988 ... Read More

  • The Varieties of Joycean Experience by Tim Conley (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Tim Conley’s most recent publication, The Varieties of Joycean Experience, begins by claiming no grand or overarching thesis. Instead, the preface encourages readers to freely “set their own pace and choose their own paths” when reading his most recent book (xiii). The introduction inspires readers to partake in this accessible yet rigorously informed collection, where Conley examines popular scholarly interpretations of his favored author vis-à-vis his own longstanding familiarity with Joycean study. The ten chapters in the slim yet detailed selection of Conley’s work provide a reflective, informed, and organized view of a variety of Joycean experiences that critically engages different trends and themes in Joyce ...

  • Language As Prayer In “Finnegans Wake,” by Colleen Jaurretche
           (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: That prayer is both a guiding principle of, and key to unlocking, Finnegans Wake is the thesis underpinning Colleen Jaurretche’s deft book-by-book analysis of James Joyce’s final work. She traces the ubiquity of prayer from Isolde’s Paternoster in early notebook sketches1 to Anna Livia’s returning of language to ordinary speech, suggesting that prayer is not only a mode of spiritual discourse but also a theory of language and a study of the human condition. Prayer, she insists, is what underpins and drives the Wakean world; it is what creates and orders it; but it is also what complicates and obscures it.The book’s introduction discusses the prevalence of the prayer in Joyce’s oeuvre more broadly as well as in the ...

  • James Joyce and Classical Modernism by Leah Culligan Flack (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: James Joyce’s engagement with the classics has such a long critical tradition that the publication of a new book on the subject is a sign of the brisk vitality and good health that Joyce studies continues to enjoy. James Joyce and Classical Modernism is the third installment in the “Classical Reception in Twentieth-Century Writing” series edited by Laura Jansen. This “groundbreaking new series” (to use Jansen’s words) intends to offer a “two-way perspective”: the volumes’ investigations into the authors’ engagement with the classics will offer “new readings of their oeuvres and contexts” while attempting to illuminate the classics with new insights.1 Leah Culligan Flack takes this mission upon herself with ...

  • Flann O’Brien: Gallows Humour ed. by Ruben Borg and Paul Fagan
           (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In a delightful scene in At Swim-Two-Birds, the bodiless Good Fairy informs the devil Pooka that a pulp character is “a woman and a fine one from the point of view of those that have bodies on them.”1 The repartee illustrates well a pervasive quality of O’Brien’s writing where, at times, flippancy, at times, ominous dissociation from corporeality is the source of much unclassifiable humor. This juncture between largely dysfunctional, abject bodies and unsettling humor is the focus of the latest volume in a series dedicated to Flann O’Brien/Myles na gCopaleen and edited by veteran Flanneurs Ruben Borg and Paul Fagan; reflecting a stage in rapidly diversifying and globalized Flann O’Brien studies after the archival ...

      Abstract: The recipient of the Special Prize of the Romanian Writers’Union in 2019,1 O noapte cu Molly Bloom. Romanul unei femei is Mircea Mihăieş’s second book on James Joyce, after his “metanarrative of critical imagination” entitled “ULYSSES,” 732: ROMANUL ROMANULUI,2 and, in its author’s own ambitious words, “the first biographical reconstruction of the character Molly Bloom we owe to a single author. . . . the demarche is without doubt the broadest exploration ‘of the life and times’ of the heroine, through a multiple approach of the fictional existence with which Joyce has endowed her” (9).3The study is made up of fourteen chapters, some with intriguing, even tantalizing titles such as “Carousel Molly,”4 “Molly from ...

  • Aloysius The Great by John Maxwell O’Brien (review)

      Abstract: What do Alexander the Great, Biddy the Clap,1 and The Beatles have in common—aside from “the” in their names' They all appear, in one form or another, in John Maxwell O’Brien’s debut comic novel Aloysius the Great. But that is where their similarity—and O’Brien’s book when compared to the great comic novel that is Ulysses—ends.Aloysius the Great—advertised as “inspired by” Joyce’s novel2—is one in a line of modern academic farces epitomized by such entertaining works as David Lodge’s wildly satiric “Campus Trilogy”—Changing Places, Small World: An Academic Romance, and Nice Work.3 Yet, in contrast to Lodge’s novels that are primarily set in the mid-1970s and 1980s, Aloysius begins in 1967. So this book’s presumed ... Read More
