About the Authors
  • Semicolonial Joyce is the first collection of essays to address the importance of Ireland's colonial situation in understanding the work of James Joyce. The volume reflects the ambivalences in Joyce's relationship with Irish nationalism, bringing together leading commentators on a topic that has attracted growing interest in recent years. The contributions both draw on and question the achievements of postcolonial theory, presenting a range of voices rather than a single position, and provide fresh insights into Joyce's resourceful engagement with political issues that remain highly topical today.

    • A collection of essays (especially commissioned) on the highly topical subject of Joyce's relation to Irish colonialism and nationalism
    • Distinguished team of contributors including the best-known figures in the reconsideration of Ireland's cultural history e.g. Seamus Deane, David Lloyd, Luke Gibbons
    • Reflects and questions the developments in postcolonial theory
