Courses: James Joyce (ENGLB377001)
Class Number: 1295
Joyces works lend themselves particularly well to critical disagreements: he has been called the most pessimistic nihilist and the greatest optimist; a misogynist and a radical feminist; a true Catholic and a great Jewish writer; the worst of elitists and a celebrator of the common man; a fascist and a socialist; the most boring writer and the writer providing the most intense, orgasmic pleasures. We will read one novel but that journey will be broken up with forays into Joyces earlier works.
