Product Description

Review

"...at every turn this superb study introduces fresh perspectives on an important subject." James Joyce Literary Supplement

Book Description

Neil R. Davison argues that Joyce's lifelong encounter with pseudo-scientific, religious, and political discourse about 'the Jew' forms a unifying component of his career. Davison offers new biographical material to support the claim that 'the Jew' was a dynamic aspect of Joyce's imagination from youth to adulthood, and presents a detailed reading of Ulysses to show how Joyce confronts the controversy of 'race,' the psychology of internalized stereotype, and the contradictions of anti-Semitism in pre-Holocaust Europe.

Format: Paperback
An essential guide to understanding Bloom's perception of himself. Davison makes it clear that Joyce's undrstanding of Jews was fluid.
