About the Authors
  • Marian Eide argues that the central concern of James Joyce's writing was the creation of a literary ethic. Eide examines Joyce's ethical preoccupations throughout his work, particularly the tension between his commitment as an artist and his social obligations as a father and citizen during a tumultuous period of European history. This is the first study devoted to Joyce's ethical philosophy as it emerges in his writing.

    • Covers a wide range of Joyce's writing
    • Lucidly examines relation between literary writing and ethics
    • Modernism one of the strongest areas of the list

    Reviews & endorsements

    "Eide's book is densely philosophical but not inaccessible... [H]er work is original and iinsightful. Highly recommended." Choice

    "This study should prove highly provocative for the reader in the implications of the contrast between traditional ethics of classical scholars and the newer theorists and their innovative interpretations of modern ethics." James Joyce Literary Supplement
