Summary
"On the surface, James Joyce's work is largely apolitical. Through most of the twentieth century he was the proud embodiment of the rootless intellectual. However, perspectives on the colonial history of Ireland have proliferated in recent years, yielding a subtle and complex conception of the Irish postcolonial experience that has become a major theme in current Joyce scholarship. In this volume Leonard Orr brings together a diverse collection of essays situating Joyce in the debates generated by postcolonial theory and discourse."--BOOK JACKET
