Joyce On The Threshold

by Anne Fogarty, Joyce On The Threshold Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Joyce On The Threshold books, This collection of fourteen essays explores Joyce's work in relation to the theme of liminality, the tendency of Joyce's writing to straddle borders and explore the margins of sexuality, genre, nationality, and language. The four sections of the book consider, in turn, the unusual power of peripheral or marginal elements in Joyce's writing; Joyce's liminal identity as an Irish writer, working from a position of exile and in uncertain relation to the English literary tradition; his engagement with developments that define the transition to modernity and modernism; and the special importance in Joyce studies of questions traditionally regarded as marginal in relation to the critic's main task. The collective emphasis on liminality captures an important aspect of Joyce's artistic signature, the dialectic between the center and the margins that is either explored by or embodied in Joyce's writing, while the methodology of individual essays is diverse, drawing upon such theorists as Bakhtin, Foucault, de Certeau, and Benjamin and bringing critical tools like "transtextuality" and the "pendant-text" to Joyce studies for the first time. The collection is particularly strong in its use of historical and other contextual material to challenge established points of view.

Cultural Perspectives On Globalisation And Ireland

by Eamon Maher, Cultural Perspectives On Globalisation And Ireland Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Cultural Perspectives On Globalisation And Ireland books, In the space of a few short decades, Ireland has become one of the most globalised societies in the Western world. The full ramifications of this transformation for traditional Irish communities, religious practice, economic activity, as well as literature and the arts, are as yet unknown. What is known is that Ireland's largely unthinking embrace of globalisation has at times had negative consequences. Unlike some other European countries, Ireland has eagerly and sometimes recklessly grasped the opportunities for material advancement afforded by the global project. This collection of essays, largely the fruit of two workshops organised under the auspices of the Humanities Institute of Ireland at University College Dublin and the National Centre for Franco-Irish Studies in the Institute of Technology, Tallaght, explores how globalisation has taken such a firm hold on Irish society and provides a cultural perspective on the phenomenon. The book is divided into two sections. The first examines various manifestations of globalisation in Irish society whereas the second focuses on literary representations of globalisation. The contributors, acknowledged experts in the areas of cultural theory, religion, sociology and literature, offer a panoply of viewpoints of Ireland's interaction with globalisation.

Bloomsday 100

by Morris Beja, Bloomsday 100 Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Bloomsday 100 books, "Ulysses is always lauded as one of western culture's most important books. This collection of essays re-asserts the worth and vitality of Joyce's monumental text, not because it is challenging but because it speaks so powerfully to significant present-day issues: anti-Semitism, film, melodrama, fashion, photography, silenced women, advertising, and more."--Jennifer Fraser, author of Rite of Passage in the Narratives of Dante and Joyce June 16, 2004, was the one hundredth anniversary of Bloomsday, the day that James Joyce's novel Ulysses takes place. To celebrate the occasion, thousands took to the streets in Dublin, following in the footsteps of protagonist Leopold Bloom. The event also was marked by the Bloomsday 100 Symposium, where world-renowned scholars discussed Joyce's seminal work. This volume contains the best, most provocative readings of Ulysses presented at the conference. The contributors to this volume urge a close engagement with the novel. They offer readings that focus variously on the materialist, historical, and political dimensions of Ulysses. The diversity of topics covered include nineteenth-century psychology, military history, Catholic theology, the influence of early film and music hall songs on Joyce, the post-Ulysses evolution of the one-day novel, and the challenge of discussing such a complex work amongst the sea of extant criticism.

A Guide Through Finnegans Wake

Download A Guide Through Finnegans Wake books, This book guides readers through the complex, pun-based, and dreamlike narrative of James Joyce's Finnegans Wake. Defying conventions of plot and continuity, Finnegans Wake has been challenging readers since its first publication in 1939. The novel is so famously difficult that it is widely agreed that only the brave or foolhardy attempt to unravel this well-known but relatively little-read classic.

Waste

by William Viney, Waste Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Waste books, Why are people so interested in what they and others throw away? This book shows how this interest in what we discard is far from new - it is integral to how we make, build and describe our lived environment. As this wide-ranging new study reveals, waste has been a polarizing topic for millennia and has been treated as a rich resource by artists, writers, philosophers and architects. Drawing on the works of Giorgio Agamben, T.S. Eliot, Jacques Derrida, Martin Heidegger, James Joyce, Bruno Latour and many others, Waste: A Philosophy of Things investigates the complexities of waste in sculpture, literature and architecture. It traces a new philosophy of things from the ancient to the modern and will be of interest to those working in cultural and literary studies, archaeology, architecture and continental philosophy.
