about

James Joyce was a central figure of high modernism; Malcolm Lowry spoke for the next generation of modernist writers and, despite his denials, was almost certainly influenced by Joyce. Wherever the truth lies, there are correspondences and differences to be explored between Joyce and Lowry that are far more interesting than the question of direct influence. The contributors to Joyce/Lowry examine the relationship of these two expatriate writers, both to each other and to broader issues in the study of literary modernism and its aftermath. This collection embraces a variety of approaches to both writers' work. Each essay places Joyce and Lowry in some larger context and arrives at insights that would not otherwise have been apparent.
