The work s of James Joyce have long been regarded as central to European modernism. It is also clear what a continuing provocation and source of renewal Joyces works are for contemporary cultural theory, especially feminism, post modernism and postcolonialism. This new edition of Steven Connors book is an animated, accessible critique to the whole range of Joyces work, from Dubliners through to Finnegans Wake. It contains a revised bibliography and critical evaluation, taking account of the ever-growing corpus of literary criticism of Joyce and his work. Steven Connor is a foremost scholar of modern literature, and his book traces the leading concerns of Joyces work with language, sexual and cultural identity, and the transforming experiences of modernity, and considers the relations between Joyce and postmodernity.
