About the Authors
  • Representations of "the Jew" have long been a topic of interest in Joyce studies. Neil Davison argues that Joyce's lifelong encounter with pseudo-scientific, religious, and political discourse about "the Jew" forms a unifying component of his career. He offers new biographical material, and presents a detailed reading of Ulysses to show how Joyce confronts the controversy of "race," the psychology of internalized stereotype, and the contradictions of fin-de-siècle anti-Semitism.

    • Foreword by Anthony Julius, author of the acclaimed and controversial study T. S. Eliot, Anti-Semitism and Literary Form
    • Well-reviewed study now available in paperback; Joyce and the representation of Jewishness both currently hot topics
    • Presents fresh and revisionist reading of Ulysses and important new biographical research
