This collection of essays offers an original look at Joyce's writing by placing his language at the intersection of various critical perspectives: linguistics, philosophy, feminism, psychoanalysis, postcolonialism and intertextuality. Combining detailed textual analysis and theoretically informed study, an international team of leading scholars explores how Joyce's experiments with language repeatedly challenge our ways of reading. Drawing on current debates in Joyce scholarship, literary studies and critical theory, this volume comprehensively examines the critical diversity of Joyce's use of language.
Laurent Milesi is Lecturer in English and American Literature and Critical Theory at Cardiff University, and a member of the Joyce ITEM-CNRS Research Group in Paris. He is the author of numerous essays, mainly on Joyce and related aspects of modernism, 20th-century American poetry, postmodernism and poststructuralism.
