Reauthorizing Joyce

Vicki Mahaffey

Research output: Book/Report/Conference proceedingBook


An exploration of how Joyce took the potentially authoritarian discourse of narrative fiction and turned it into an authoritative, illuminating, comic, and sometimes bawdy dialogue with the reader over the heads of his character. Ranging over Joyce's entire corpus, it attempts throughout to differentiate freedom--the freedom of both the writer and the reader--from the less conscious and rewarding reflex of resistance.
