Nov. 13 1998 0521636205 978-0521636209
Representations of "the Jew" have long been a topic of interest in Joyce studies. Neil Davison argues that Joyce's lifelong encounter with pseudo-scientific, religious, and political discourse about "the Jew" forms a unifying component of his career. He offers new biographical material, 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 fin-de-siècle anti-Semitism.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb account of Joyce's perceptions of Jews. Sept. 3 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
An essential guide to understanding Bloom's perception of himself. Davison makes it clear that Joyce's undrstanding of Jews was fluid.
